ChurchEdit

 
The altar of the Saint Anne church

The first church in Tetenbüll, a chapel, was built in 1113. The present church of St. Anna was built around 1400, after the embankment of the Tetenbüller Kirchenkoog. The wood-beamed ceiling is adorned with a painting from the 18th century showing the way of Christ. On the north gallery, built in 1612, there are pictures of 30 scenes from the Old Testament.[2]
