From a distance you can see the 49 meter high, yellow church tower of the St. Bartholomäus church in Röhrsdorf. It's worth taking a look at the baroque building. Above the baptismal font, you can discover the baptismal angel hanging on a winch. Since 1739, the angel has floated from the ceiling at more than 6,000 baptisms.

The St. Bartholomew Church is a baroque church building of the Evangelical Lutheran Regional Church in the Klipphausen district of Röhrsdorf. Between 1986 and 1999 the church with its 49 meter high tower and the neighboring rectory built in 1694 were gradually renovated. Many more restorations followed.
The christening angel was created in 1738 by Benjamin Thomae, the Saxon court sculptor Augustus the Strong. In 1839 the angel received patronage from the Klipphausener patronage under Heinrich LXIII. Reuss donated a new, silver baptismal bowl to Köstritz. Since 1739 the angel has been used continuously in over 6,000 baptisms. In 2003 the baptismal angel was extensively restored. Today it hangs from the ceiling in front of the altar on a plastic rope used in deep sea fishing.
