The St. Michael in Downtown Jena is an evangelical church dating back to the 14th Century. It is believed that the current building was constructed on the site of an older one that came from the 12th Century. During the 17th Century, renovations were carried out in the church, but the original charm and beauty of the structure was maintained. This huge church is the faith center for many and is known for conducting regular services and prayers. There is a wooden sculpture Angelus Jenensis dating back to the 13th Century in the church. Another striking feature of the church is the grave plate of Martin Luther from the 16th Century. Musical concerts are conducted in the church owing to the great acoustics here.
