Built inside fortified walls, the church has a Romanesque nave. This place of worship was renovated at the beginning of the 20th century. It has a big glass window that relates the village’s history and recalls the Emperor Frederick I, Barbarossa and the Hohenstaufen family. A black eagle also reminds the fact that the village once belonged to the German Empire. Many interesting objects may be found inside: a 16th century offering box, the 1747 Silbermann organ’s façade, the carved wooden pulpit from 1908, as well as a curious iron hand in memory of the knight, Hans von Mittelhausen from the beginning of the 16th century.
