    Description :

    Martin Elsaesser designed the Gustav-Adolf-Church on an octagon floor plan. On the sides of the building, a rectangular tower rises in the southwest and in the porch are located the main entrance, a baptismal chapel, and a gallery.

    Behind the altar and pulpit is the sacristy and in the basement there are community rooms. Martin Elsaesser included here parts of the early 14th century St. George church.

    A horizontal window band, under the concrete pyramid copper-shed roof, is repeated in the details and vertical structured openings of the tower.
