The Marienkirche Groß Salitz dates from the 13th and early 14th century and surprises with its unusual size and shape for a village church. As a "bicycle culture church" cyclists and hikers are welcome to use the rest area at the church.
For a "village church", St. Mary's Church of Groß Salitz has an unusual design: it is a three-nave basilica of considerable size with a two-bay nave. Due to its age and size, it was probably of supra-regional importance and possibly also a pilgrimage church. The church originally also had a tower, which collapsed in 1648 and was replaced by a wooden tower.
Terracotta holy figures from the Romanesque predecessor building are still preserved. Inside, the church houses a frieze I organ and a Baroque altar.
As "FahrradKulTourKirche Groß Salitz", the church and the congregation invite visitors to take a break in Groß Salitz. In the entrance area of the church visitors will find seating, material for small bicycle repairs, as well as information about the biosphere reserve. For groups (from 8 - 15 people), guided tours and snacks can be organized on site upon request. In addition, the church community offers simple overnight accommodation in the community room with self-catering for hiking and biking groups.
