    Unfortunately, only the tower of the church, which is just over 80 m high, has been preserved. The nave was heavily destroyed in World War II, and demolished in 1960. It was one of the highest church in Wismar, with a height of over 32 m in the nave. Today you can still see the outlines.

    Here you can see what wars are doing on historic buildings.
    The city has rebuilt the foundations of the completely destroyed nave and one has thus a good idea of the original size of the church, of which "only" the church tower remained.

    The imposing sacred building belongs to one of the 3 main churches of Wismar, as well as St. Nikolai and St. George's Church. The late Gothic hall church was built at the beginning of the 13th century near the market place. In the 15th century it was then extended by 2 side halls.The church was badly damaged during World War II. In 1960, on the decision of the then City Council, the damaged nave was blown up so that today only the 80 m high west tower stands.
