Jacobi Church

Jacobikirche is a late Gothic, three-nave hall church. It was built from 1457 - 1542 on the site of a previous building mentioned in 1271.
The 61 m high church tower is topped by a Renaissance dome. With its 1.71 m westward slope and the gilded moon clock on the eastern clock face, the tower is one of Sangerhausen's landmarks.
The church interior is impressive with its rich furnishings and the painting by Georg Bottschild from 1665 in the nave. The choir stalls and the three-part winged altar come from the Augustinian monastery, which was dissolved in 1539. In addition to various interesting tombstones, the tomb of Caspar Tryller and Catharina Schillingstedt (1618) is particularly significant.
The valuable mechanical organ was built by master organ builder Zacharias Hildebrandt, a student of Gottfried Silbermann. He installed the work with 30 stops and 1,908 sounding pipes from 1726 to 1728.
