The church in Caputh is located right in the centre of the village, directly opposite Caputh Castle. It was built by order of Friedrich Wilhelm IV. of Friedrich August Stüler (pupil of Schinkel) in 1850-52 and is a pillar basilica built in the neo-Romanesque Italian style with a stepped campanile. The starry skies inspired by Schinkel on the coffered ceiling and in the chancel, the classicist interior and the Schinkel baptismal font are impressive.

The church forms the visible centre of a lively community and has been lovingly repaired again and again despite severe structural damage. It captivates with its simple and clear forms. It offers guests at Schwielowsee a particularly beautiful place for reflection and inner contemplation.
Father Thomas Thieme invites every Sunday at 10 o'clock to the divine service.
Opening hours: from Easter to Thanksgiving daily 9.00 - 18.00 o'clock
