Bike Touring Highlight
The village of Fuhlenhagen originally belonged to the nunnery monastery of Reinbek. Duke Magnus I of Saxe-Lauenburg ordered the village of the 16th century to the newly formed parish Sahms. The chapel is first mentioned in documents in 1609, but due to the dendrochronological examination of the wood, it can be dated to the time around 1580. The St. George's Chapel is a longitudinally rectangular half-timbered hall with a beautiful pattern of fillings, which ends with a flat wooden beamed ceiling and a saddleback roof on the outside. The western part with the small gable tower is a bit younger. The windows are decorated with shielded glass panes from the years 1622, 1623 and 1673.
Inside there are still some art treasures, some of which are still from a predecessor, such as a relief showing St. George as a dragon slayer (late 15th century) and the middle shrine of a carved altar depicting the grace throne (about 1420).
