Thank-you so kindly for sharing this with us, and also for tagging travel_2_germany!! 🇩🇪 @irieboi3000
🌲 The Gustav Adolf Stave Church in Hahnenklee is 110 years old now and the only one of its kind in Germany. It’s completely built of wood - you won’t even find any nail or screw! That’s a Northern European architecture style which is almost exclusively found in Norway today. How do you like it? 🤔
“The Lutheran Gustav Adolf Stave Church is a stave church situated in Hahnenklee, a borough of Goslar in the Harz mountains, Germany. Construction of the church began in 1907, and the church was consecrated on June 28, 1908.
The church is a free copy of the medieval Borgund Stave Church in Norway. It was erected during the steep rise of Hahnenklee to a spa town and major tourist destination, with adaptions to fulfil its role as a parish church. The plans were designed by Karl Mohrmann, architect of the Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Hanover, a representative of the historicist Hanover school of architecture. He had visited Borgund and held the view that stave churches once were common in the medieval Saxon areas too.”
