1. Georgskapelle

Show sight on map

The St. George's Chapel is located in the old centre of the former farming village of Groß Liedern near Uelzen. The Gothic chapel dates from the second half of the 14th century and is a typical example of late medieval village sacred architecture, of which numerous examples have been preserved in the district of Uelzen. The naming of the chapel after St. George obviously only appeared in the 20th century and goes back to the main figure of the late Gothic carved altar, which is the most important piece of equipment of the chapel. The chapel is regarded as a prime example of the small medieval "village churches in the area around Uelzen", which belong architecturally to the wider environment of the church buildings around Lüneburg's St. John's Church. Here it becomes clear how the "great" architecture was reflected in the region.
