Johanniskirche Zittau (Church of St. John Zittau)

At a glance

The Church of St. John, Euro-regional cultural centre, has been rebuilt according to the blueprints of Schinkel and was ceremoniously reopened in 1837.

None other but Karl Friedrich Schinkel provided the Zittauer Kirche with two dissimilar towers after the church´s destruction by Austrian brigades in 1757, which was for static reasons. Today´s sanctified organ from 1930 is the most significant preserved instrument dated back to the times between the World Wars and is considered as the most significant organ monument in Europe.
