The St. Bartholomew´s Chapel is a memorial of F. W. Sertürner, the discoverer of morphine.
The chapel sometimes hosts prayers, (art) exhibits or theater plays today.
The St. Bartholomew´s Chapel consists of two parts:
- The chapel itself was built in the first half of the 15th century. The half-timbered part was then added in 1510. You can still recognize the number above the entrance.
- In order to turn the chapel into a Sertürner memorial, plans for redesigning were already made in 1934. The extension on the northern side with the family vault of Einbeck´s Wernher family had only been accessible from the outside and hadn´t had an entry to the chapel.
