Churches 

By way of an overview, we have gathered here some information about the most beautiful churches in the Rhineland and Eifel areas, of which none are far from Nettehammer Manor. 

Please bear in mind that a smaller church at full capacity is far more atmospheric and festive for a wedding than a large church with only the front rows filled. Some catholic churches also offer the possibility of purely Protestant weddings, if bride and groom arrange for their own celebrant. Oecumenic weddings are usually permitted. In any case, if you have found your ideal church, it is worth an inquiry with the local parish. Alternatively, we recommend our estate as a stunning wedding venue; our special status permits us to conduct official ceremonies onsite.

 

Christuskirche (prot)

The Christuskirche in Andernach was built between 1350 and 1450 in a late Gothic style. Its architectural style makes it one of the most important minority churches in the Rhineland: the spectacularly spacious hall is flooded with light, and wide arcade openings reach up high into the vaults, between slim, profiled pillars. The overall effect is an impression of great simplicity, combined with no end of detailed elaborations in the wallwork of the light main room.

Feldkirche (prot)

The oldest church in the Neuwied borough was built between 1150 and 1200 A.D. This late Roman stone basilica was erected on the wooden remains of an even older construction. Both Feldkirche and Gut Nettehammer belonged to the tenure of the St. Thomas monastery in Andernach since the early 13th century. Feldkirche became Protestant during the reformation. The medieval feel is completed by a picturesque archaic court set around an ancient lime tree. Georg Meistermann designed the lead crystal windows. The church is beautifully located amidst airy fields and meadows.

Marktkirche (prot)

The Marktkirche was built in 1884 in early gothic style. After war damages and recurring Rhine floods, a restauration was executed in magnificent fashion. The great gallery hall is flooded with beams of light from the airy transept. The church interior blazes with an original splendor of colours as in 1884. Remnants of old frescos in the transept have been carefully preserved. The Organ boasts 2700 pipes and 38 registers.

Lukaskirche (prot)

The prostestant Lukas Church was erected in 1885 by the Wiesbaden based architect Friedrich Lang in neo-gothic style. The small church is located on a hill overlooking the Rhine valley and impresses through its friendly and private atmosphere. Here, services with smaller congregations find an ideal location with a festive and pleasant atmosphere. Moreover, concert events like the Guitar Days of Vallendar make Lukas Church a sought venue in the region.

Florinskirche (prot)

Protestant church St. Florin was built around 1100 in the old town of Coblence. It was conceived as a pillar basilica in Roman style and underwent a gothic transformation as the other two churches in Coblence that are presented here. In the war of the Palatinate succession the church was severely damaged. It was rebuilt in 1710. After Napoleonic secularisation it was used as a repository. In 1820 it was finally sanctified protestant. Together with three other historic monuments, the church forms a protected ensemble. As such it is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Upper Mid-Rhine Valley.

Evangelische Kirche in Mendig (prot)

The church was built for the growing Protestant community in the region at the end of the 19th century. In 1828, there were only 2 Protestant citizens in Mendig. With the boom in the local brewery sector, Protestants moved to Mendig and the region, allowing for the inauguration of the Protestant church on May 2nd 1892. The church was constructed by the local master-builder Laubenthal out of basalt stone. This stone is typical for the region and a reminiscence of the Volcanic history of the Eiffel. To this day the church is used very actively by the local parish.

Matthiaskapelle (prot) (cath)

This chapel, only a 20-minute drive from Nettehammer, is a gem of late Romanesque architecture, nestled on the Oberburg over Kobern-Gondorf, with wonderful views out over the river Mosel. It was built in 1220 by the knight Heinrich II von Isenburg. The unique hexagonal building is a fairytale venue for a church ceremony. This chapel is a fantastic choice for anyone eager to build in some quiet time together to privately relive the ceremony as you are driven back through the Eifel, before the hustle-bustle of your guests at the reception.

Dom Maria Himmelfahrt (prot)

This mighty basilica, with an aisle on either side of the nave and four towers, was built in 1220 in a local transition style combining Romanic and Gothic elements. It has always served as both town church and the episcopal cathedral, and is therefore also known as Mariendom. Its interior includes the Kaiser’s altar, endowed by Friedrich III in 1475, and a 13th century basaltine-columned font. The Marienkirche is the largest and most impressive church near Nettehammer Manor.

Benediktinerabtei Maria Laach (cath)

The famous monastery Maria Laach was founded at the Laach lake in the year 1093 within the beautiful volcanic landscape of the Eiffel. Heinrich II of Laach founded the Roman basilica, that today counts highly amongst the most significant roman monuments in Germany. The perystile dates from 1220, the frescos were created before 1500. After eventful centenaries including the liquidation of the monastery in 1802, the Benedictine order reclaimed the historic site at the end of the 19th century. Today, the monks are leading the Abbey with great dedication and hospitality.

Basilika St. Kastor (cath)

The Basilica St. Kastor is the oldest remaining church building in the UNESCO World Heritage Site Upper Mid-Rhine Valley. This location was already a site of pre-historic cult activity. The church dates back to the 9th century and received its final styling in the 12th and then in the 19th century. It is located right in the park directly behind the “Deutsches Eck”, at the junction of the two great German rivers Rhine and Mosel. In 1499 a late gothic stellar vault was installed. Despite this addition, the church impresses through its air of centuries and particular capaciousness.

Liebfrauenkirche (cath)

The two onion domes of catholic Liebfrauenchurch are the defining feature of the city of Coblence.

The late roman building from around 1200 is a main monument of medieval sacral building activity in the Mid-Rhine region.
