Also in Raben you will find a small village church in Feldsteinbauweise. The 13th century building has undergone some changes over time. Thus, the windows have been considerably enlarged and partially added and the original church tower has been replaced by a truss tower. It is worth spending some time here to discover the church.

From the information board:
The church opens daily from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The village church has survived wars and disasters. It originated in the first half of the 13th century. The walls with retracted choir and apse are adorned with a baroque half-timbered tower.
In 1858 extensive renovation measures were carried out, which helped shape the current appearance of the church. For example, one window opening bricked up, two more enlarged and three new window openings broken open in the south wall. The church building work that took place at that time shows that the congregation was doing very well financially at that time. Another restoration of the church took place in 1906/07. The weather vane on the tower reminds of this. The painting of the church is from this time. On the north outer wall of the nave there are several very old grave monuments. They are reminiscent of strokes of fate in times long past.
