Churches, Brick Gothic

The church St. Maria Magdalena zu Vilmnitz is a late Romanesque/Gothic brick church in the Putbus district of Vilmnitz.

The origin of the Vilmnitz church may be traced back to Stoislaw I, a brother of the Rügen prince Jaromar I, who lived around 1200. In the first documentary mention from 1249 it is said that the parish "Vylmenytze" belonged to the hereditary estates of Borante de Borantenhagen and was already founded by his ancestors.
The oldest part of the Vilmnitz church is the east choir with the sacristy, which still show clear Romanesque elements. The nave, built in the middle of the 14th century, was renewed in the 15th century. A little later the tower was completed. In 1351 the Vilmnitz church is mentioned as the burial place of the Putbus family. In the crypt under the east choir, which can still be visited today, there are about 28 coffins. The founder of the town Prince Malte and his wife are the last buried there (1854 and 1860). Particularly worth seeing among the exhibits are the four large sandstone epitaphs from 1600 in the chancel and the magnificent baroque pulpit from 1708/09. In 1996 the historic Mehmel organ was restored. For over 25 years, the weekly Thursday evening concerts have been held during the summer months.
