    The Neuhäuser Church is one of the largest wooden churches in Thuringia. It was inaugurated on August 28, 1892. In 1673, a small baroque church was built on a corner of the hunting lodge (today the city administration). In addition to the small community, this was used by the state father, Count Albert-Anton von Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt and his wife, Countess Aemilie-Juliane. The Schmalenbuche parish was founded in 1683.

    The wooden "town church" is the second in Neuhaus am Rennsteig. The first wooden church, consecrated in 1673, was demolished in 1894.

    On my rainy day of hiking I got a personal tour from the pastor, as no other visitors were registered. Here I was given extensive and heartfelt facts. Since I was completely soaked, I was even offered warm tea.

    Very nice old wooden church in which I spontaneously got a small private tour, because the "Lord of the Church" was there ...
    It is one of the largest wooden churches in Thuringia, consecrated in 1892. The church was built in the late Gothic style and is entirely covered with slate.

    The Neuhäuser Church is one of the largest wooden churches in Thuringia.
    It was inaugurated on August 28, 1892.
    In 1673, a small baroque church was built on a corner of the hunting lodge (today the city administration).
    In addition to the small community, this was used by the country's father, Count Albert-Anton von Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt and his wife, Countess Aemilie-Juliane.
    The parish of Schmalenbuche was founded in 1683.
    The parish Neuhaus included the places Lichte, Geiersthal, Fischbachwiese, Habichtsbach and Scheibe-Alsbach.
    The old wooden church was renewed and enlarged several times until it no longer met the requirements of a growing population.
    The 26-year-old pastor Hilmar Scheller campaigned for the church to be rebuilt.
    The construction costs were borne by the Princely Schwarzburg-Rudolstädtische Staat.
    Baurat Brecht, architect of Prince Georg and Günther Viktor von Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt, worked out the planning and supervised the construction work by local trades.
