Bike Touring Highlight
The Wendish establishment Talkau located between Mölln and Schwarzenbek was first mentioned in 1230 with the Slavic name Telcowe. In 1241, Duke Albert I donated the Wendenart roundleaf village to the monastery of Reinbek. In the middle of the village there was a free place, on which since 1855 the chapel dedicated to Mary Magdalene stands.

In Talkau, there was already a chapel in the Middle Ages, which was dedicated to Mary Magdalene. The present building, which is already the third on this site, was built in 1957/58. From the old chapel, the bell cast in 1646 was taken over and hung in the ridge turret. When this bell burst in 1963 when ringing, the purchase of a new bell was taken as an opportunity to build a bell carrier separate from the building. It was erected one year later according to the plans of the architect Gert Johannsen from Hamburg above the entrance to the chapel. The remains of the bell serve today as the foot of the baptismal font.
