Castle Church Ahrensburg
Ahrenburg castle´s church is located opposite the castle building. The original little brick church was built around 1595. In the 18th Century a baroque style roof and a steeple were added, as was Detlev Rantzau´s burial chamber. The wooden carvings by Carl Döbel are most remarkable.
