One of the oldest Gothic churches in southern Germany, very well condition, easy to find and reach. Try to get a lock at the place behind the church where the stoneworkers work, the companys name is Baki.

The church was built as a hall church in gothic style. Most beautiful are the three windows behind the altar which are dated back to the years 1330 and 1360 and the altar shows styles from gothic, renaissance and byzantine style elements.
