With is mighty belfry, St. Andrew´s Church rises above the market square in a most impressive manner. It is not only a dominating feature in urban development, but it also belongs to the most significant Luther places in general.

In the late Gothic pulpit, preserved almost unchanged, the Reformer gave the last sermons of his life. Martin Luther´s corpse was laid out in the chancel of the late-Gothic hall church on February 19, 1546 and was transported from there to Wittenberg on behalf of the Saxon Elector. The busts of Martin Luther and Philipp Melanchton were created by Johann Gottfried Schadow. In the side chancels, there are monuments of the Mansfeld Counts.
