Holiday in Hooksiel - Part four - Very old churches

The weather isn't nice the last days, so we went and visited some old churches. The churches around Hooksiel are very old, the oldes is from the 9. century. It is the church of a village called Hohenkichen (Highchurch)



Interior under the cut.





Organ from 1694



Pulpit from around 1690



And the oldest piece, the baptismal font from 1260-1265





After that we went to the church in Waddewarden, St. Johannes. It's a church from 1264



Inetrior under the cut again











The last church we visited in the last three days is in Pakens, a very small village with only three houses, but with a very large church which was build somewhere between 1250 and 1300.







That was my church post. Yesterday we went to Jever and visited the castle museum. But that will be another post, because I made so many photos, that would be to much for this post.
