Seen from the main road on my way to Kasselburg Castle, I couldn’t miss the visit to the Church of Büdesheim with its beautiful portal. And even though it turned out to be quite a “contemporary” building (1909) from my point of view, it has a great historical background. So, my gut didn’t betray me. Again.
The church was built in the place of a Roman Villa, and first mentioned in 893, it was a church that belonged to the Abbey of Prüm.
In 1500, it was reconstructed and from that time the present choir dates.
New- Gothic interior.
The wooden high altar from 1735.
An 18th-century confessional box.
The Baroque portal from 1687 with the coat of arms of the Trier Archbishop Johann Hugo von Orsbeck (because of the belonging of the settlement to the Electorate of Trier)
