The Seemannskirche Prerow is an 18th-century church in Vorpommern's Baltic resort of Prerow. It is the oldest church on the Darß and once served as a reference point for the seafaring.
The church was built from 1726 to 1728 (originally in half-timbered style). Between 1740 and 1830 it was rebuilt into a brick church. Her first pastor was Martin Henrici. A little to the east of the present point of view was already a church. The wooden tower dates back to 1727. In 1911, the sailor's church was painted by Marianne von Werefkin and Alexej Jawlensky, who were then spending their summer vacation in the seaside resort. Through her paintings, this maritime landmark formerly important landmark also became known nationwide. While Werefkins painting church in Prerow for decades is still missing, emerged Jawlensky's presentation - a striking detail of the "sailors church" of the southeast - in 2012 in the art trade again.
