News Release from Mormon Newsroom

The Freiberg Germany Temple has been renovated and will open in mid-August for public tours. An open house will begin Friday, August 12, and go through Saturday, August 27, 2016, except for the Sundays of August 14 and 21. It has been closed since February 2015.

Window detail.

The temple, built by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serves members of the Church in eastern Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, Moldova, Romania and Hungary. People come to the grounds to take wedding photos, sit on the benches and stroll the walkways.

The interior of the Freiberg Germany Temple includes rooms that are found in all Latter-day Saint temples: a baptistry; a celestial room, representative of eternal life with God; an instruction room, where members of the Church learn about God’s plan and make sacred promises; and sealing rooms, where marriages are performed.

Celestial Room.


Chandiler detail.

The temple will be rededicated Sunday, September 4, 2016, in three sessions, 9:00 a.m., 12:00 noon and 3:00 p.m., and broadcast to Church meetinghouses in Germany as well as to Latter-day Saints living in the Freiberg Germany Temple district. The cultural celebration will be held Saturday, September 3.

Waiting area.

The temple’s original groundbreaking took place April 23, 1983, and on June 29, 1985, the Freiberg Germany Temple was dedicated by President Gordon B. Hinckley, who was second counselor in the First Presidency of the Church at that time.
