The Saint Bartholomäus Church

The humble church with barrel vaults

The oldest written record of this church dates is from 1259, but for sure the building or a Predecessor can also be older. The floor plan corresponds to the usual scheme of the multi-part country church, which consists of a tower, a nave, an altar house and an apse. The bell was cast in 1667 by bell founder Heyse from Wolfenbüttel. After the old tower had to be demolished due to dilapidation, a new tower was built in 1863. In 1992 the nave was covered again. The organ dates from 1856 and was renovated after woodworm infestation in 2003.

The Saint Laurentius Church

The roe stone building from romanesque times

The St. Laurentius is not like many churches on the highest point, but in the middle of the old village Darlingerode. The hall church built from roe stone, which originates from the romanesque period, was possibly built from 960 to 1024 and thus in the ottonian period. To the west of the nave is a church tower with an almost square floor plan and tent roof. The western portal and today's stained glass windows were only created in 1702.
