Church of St. Jacob and St. Dionysius Gadebusch is one of the most important buildings in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
The church is one of the most significant examples of late Romanesque brick architecture. It is a three-nave hall church, unique in this area, whose construction must have begun before 1200. The tower was built at the beginning of the 14th century. In the 1st half of the 15th century, the church was extended by the Gothic choir and chapels, such as the one dedicated to Agnes, Queen of Sweden.
