The Inselkirche in Kloster is the oldest building on Hiddensee. A magnificent little church that invites "to interrupt your everyday life" and is equipped with some special features. Such as a 'baptismal font with baptismal font', which floats under the church ceiling and can be lowered at baptisms. A baptismal font that brings the baptismal water directly from heaven.

It is interesting that the church was initially built as a peasant church until 1322 as a "chapel in front of the monastery gate" and is now a seafarers' church in proper style with all its decoration and the maritime color scheme implemented after 1964 on the advice of the TU Dresden. Especially since the monastery was once dedicated to the patron saint of sailors, Nicholas. The "Hiddenseer Rosenhimmel" (sky of roses) made of wild roses was created almost overnight by the painter and bon vivant Max Nikolaus Niemeier. The church tax had been waived for him.
