Long Description:

Deutsch

Die Kirche wurde nach Entwürfen des Regierungsbaumeisters Teichmüller im neoromanischen Stil errichtet und 1898 eingeweiht. Der rote Klinkerbau hat als Grundriss ein griechisches Kreuz und einen 53 Meter hohen Vierungsturm, in dem drei Glocken zum Gebet und zu den Gottesdiensten rufen. Besonders markant an der Außenseite der Melanchthonkirche sind die reiche Gliederung und die mit Stufengiebeln überbauten großen Rosettenfenster, die in die vier Himmelsrichtungen weisen. Innen, besonders im Altarraum, staunt man über die reiche Ausmalung der Kirche im Nazarener Stil. Über den Trägern der Emporen sind die für Anhalt wichtigsten Männer der Reformation abgebildet: Martin Luther, Philipp Melanchthon und Fürst Georg. Auf der Orgelempore steht die von Wilhelm Rühlemann aus Zörbig erbaute romantische Orgel mit 13 Registern und zwei Manualen.
