The church is located on the edge of the district Suderburg in the Burgstraße, surrounded by old lime trees.
The church is not a magnificent cathedral, and yet many visitors are surprised by the simple beauty of the church and the solidity of its nearly 1000-year-old tower. It was and is this tower that accompanies the fortunes of the Suderburgers. Originally built as a defense tower, it has given people protection and security and is a testimony of bygone times with castles and palaces.
The repeatedly asked question about the age of the church and the parish of Suderburg can only be answered with reservations because, on the one hand, there are no buildings from the earliest times and, on the other hand, there is no documentary evidence from the time of foundation.
The first church in Suderburg will certainly have been a wooden church, which was then replaced by a church built from unhardened rock. However, in the middle of the 18th century, this church became so congenial that it had to be replaced by the cross-shaped timber-framed hall building standing today.
The inauguration of the church took place on the name day of St. Remigius, namely on Monday, October 1, 1753, "with much solemnity".
The naming of the Suderburg church after her patron saint, Saint Remigius (born about 440, died 533) gives after the patronage research a clue to the possible age of the church.
