A stone witness to the history of Teterow in Mecklenburg Switzerland is the town church of St. Peter and Paul.
From the laying of the foundation stone in 1215 to its complete completion, a good 200 years passed, recognizable by the different architectural styles. While the chancel with the sacristy on the north side was built in late Romanesque style, the nave and the tower are already Gothic. The carved altar from the 14th century, the gothic triumphal cross and the vault paintings in the chancel from the 13th/14th century are of cultural-historical importance. In the eight caps of the two bays motifs of the story of Jesus with the story of creation are depicted. These paintings were rediscovered in the second half of the 19th century and restored according to the style of that time. In 2009, another restoration was necessary, and today, thanks to the most modern laser and cellulose technology, the frescoes shine in all their glory and captivate many visitors. The church has characteristics of a so-called pseudo-basilica, which can be seen on the southern side aisle: lower side aisle, indicated clerestory, roof area on the outside like a Westphalian hall church.
From May to the end of September, the church is open to visitors every day except Sunday. During the summer months, concerts are regularly held here, including by the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival.
