Basilika St. Cyriakus
The Provost Church of St. Cyriakus, one of the finest and oldest churches in the Eichsfeld, is closely linked with the town history of Duderstadt. This becomes apparent from, amongst other things, the varying stylistic epochs that characterise the church. The church was declared a basilica in 2015, making it Germany’s ‘youngest’ basilica at present. Thanks to the renovation measures carried out in 2016, the church now stands in its full glory. The numerous works of art and the building’s centrepiece, the Baroque organ dating from 1734, render this a very special concert venue.
