Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: Because of the used material and its architectural style the 19th century Catholic church St. Hubertus can
be described as a typical example for sacred buildings in this region. In the last century the building was
often renovated and converted, which left ist mark. The church’s current form and ist extended damage
were the reason for the recording of the church’s building process in this thesis. The reviewing of the
object’s history as well as the recording of the exterior shell is the main emphasis of the thesis. It has
become apparent that the maintenance of the mural painting and the wooden pointed barrel vault are of
importance. They belonged to the original space version and are ist last existing relicts. Because of the
construction material there will be an excursion on the issue of basalt. Finally, suggestions for the church
community are formulated on how to maintain the substance. Those suggestions are supposed to support
the process of maintaining the precious monument.
