Durlacher Allee 23, Karlsruhe

The exterior of the Protestant Lutherkirche is charac­te­rised by large wall surfaces, which are only divided by a few windows. The use of roughly carved ashlars makes the church look as if it has been hewn out of a rock. It is part of a coherent ensemble of church, rectory and parish rooms. At the foot of the bell tower there is a monumental relief of the preacher Martin Luther, a work of sculptor Oskar Kiefer.

The interior of the Lutherkirche consists of a low, vaulted central room, which opens in all four direc­tions into flatly closed arms of the cross with galleries. Altar, pulpit and organ form a unit in the central axis of the room. The relief by Hermann Binz behind the pulpit shows a scene from the Sermon on the Mount.
