  • A little gem, beautiful and absolutely worth seeing! Also the small cemetery at the church!
  • According to tradition, the late medieval Pietà and parts of the pulpit come from a ship of the Spanish Armada that is said to have stranded off the island in 1586. The altarpiece is neo-Gothic. The altar table and altarpiece were made by the islanders. The altarpiece by the Berlin painter Engels was bought by the island community in 1896 for 300 marks. The painting of the interior from 1901, as well as the windows with symbols of the Evangelists, built in the same year, bear Art Nouveau traits. The windows were donated by island regulars. The Renaissance pulpit is dated to the 16th century and is decorated with Low German inscriptions and floral motifs. The sacrificial box was made from flotsam in 1676. The church was restored in 1980. There are several tombstones from the 18th century in the cemetery by the island church.
