Vāne – church

History

The first timber church in Vāne was built by Solomon Henings in 1573. Today’s stone temple was erected only in 1653-1663 by his son Gothard Hinging.

Architecture

The church is an orientated building, consisting of a rectangular nave with a chancel ended from the east by a polygon and a tower from the west. Despite the late date of construction, it has distinct gothic features, for example an pointed arch entrance portal or small and narrow window openings in a massive tower.
