in Arnsberg-Vosswinkel

The St. Urbanus church was built from 1750 to 1765 and has baroque furnishings worth seeing. Some pieces probably come from the Premonstratensian monastery Scheda, which was abolished during the secularization.




St. Urbanus Church

Voßwinkeler Str. 16

59757 Arnsberg



In 1187 a priest is mentioned in Voßwinkel for the first time. However, the church dedicated to St. Urbanus I (pope and martyr) seems to have existed much earlier. After the fire of the previous building in 1749, the present baroque church was built on the same site from 1750-56. Its consecration took place after the Seven Years' War in 1765. A neo-baroque annex was added in 1938-39.
The three rococo altars are worth seeing; one side altar used to serve as a pulpit at the same time, a rarity especially in Catholic churches. The organ from 1890 is the first work of the then newly founded organ building company Stockmann, Werl.
During the last renovation (2002/03) the interior received a modern painting by the artist Tobias Kammerer. The connection between historical furnishings and modern painting is highly regarded.
