Here is a section of Wikipedia: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martinskirche_(Neckartailfingen)The Martinskirche in Neckartailfingen near Nürtingen is 900 years old and with its leaning tower the landmark of the community.It can be concluded from the patron saint of St. Martin of Tours that since the 7th or 8th century, a predecessor building stood on the site of today's church. The church is first mentioned in the codex hirsaugiensis, when around 1090 the counts Kuno and Liutold von Achalm donated half of the church and other property in the area to the monastery Hirsau. The present St. Martin's Church was built at the beginning of the 12th century as a Romanesque, three-aisled pillared basilica under the administrator of the gifted estate, the Hirsauer Abbot Bruno.Through thorough dendrochronological studies of the roof beams was found in 1996 that the wood in the winter of 1110/11 and in the spring of 1111 was felled and freshly installed. Thus, the completion of at least the shell of the church could be clearly determined to the year 1111.
