Service with Holy Communion

The altar in the choir, which rises up to 12 m high, is made largely of soft French limestone because of its delicate shapes. On the massive mensa block (altar table) with a top made of red-brown marble there is a carved crucifix (1890 by the Tyrolean woodcarver Demetz) and two heavy brass candlesticks. Behind the mensa rises the tabernacle-like altarpiece, consisting of three high keel arches richly decorated with Gothic style elements, in which three large limestone figures stand.

The glass portraits of European reformers

In the two lower windows of the north wall to the left and right of the gallery stairs, 12 glass portraits of European reformers of the 16th century can be seen. They were donated in 1983 by the Evangelical Church of the Union to expand the one-sided selection of German protagonists of the Reformation made in the 19th century. The medallion-shaped portraits were created by the graphic artist Renate Brömme in grisaille painting based on historical models.
