The church from the 15th century is located directly on the Weser dike. Due to the devastating storm surge in 1962, it was badly damaged, which is why it is now protected by a sheet pile wall. Actually it is called St. Mary's Church, but is also referred to by the population, which is very connected to shipping, as a "sailor church".
