Show sight on map

The former Kilianskapelle, built between 1180 and 1200 in Romanesque style, served as the market chapel of the Sankt Martin parish in Oberweimar. As a result, it is the oldest surviving building in the centre of Marburg, located in Schuhmarkt in Reitgasse, Upper Marburg, not far from the Old University. I'm 16. In 1227, Marburg became an independent parish, but Kilianskapelle was not the main parish church in the 13th century. The town was conquered in the 14th century after Landgraves of Hesse donated the Parish of Marburg to the Teutonic Order in 1243.
