St. Jacobi Church in Gingst is the second largest on the Island of Rügen.

Around 1300 the construction of the choir was started. Around 1400 the church construction has been continued. Thus, the three-nave nave was built. The church tower was added 50 years later, but it burned down in 1699 due to a lightning strike, so the present tower is not the original one. Four years later, the church was again hit by a serious disaster. During a hurricane, the newly built church tower collapsed and, as it fell, pierced the church roof and the vaults of the nave. As a result, a flat stucco ceiling was then installed in the nave. In 1726 a great fire destroyed the entire interior of the church. Thanks to the commitment of the prepositor Johannes Buschmann and many donors, reconstruction work on the church could begin in 1729. An inscription on the north wall of the church testifies to this. Thus, in 1730 the pews and confessionals were added to the church, in 1735 the baptismal font, in 1743 the pulpit and in 1776 the altar. In 1790 the St. Jacobi church in Gingst received its present organ. Church service is celebrated every Sunday. It begins at 9:30 am. The church is open from March to October from Monday to Friday from 8.30 -16.00.
