The church was built in 1614 (after the Reformation was introduced in 1545) in the centre of the old town, on the site of an older building, dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The church still has a Gothic appearance; it houses a polychrome sandstone pulpit, marked with the dates 1579 and 1614. Paintings made during the second half of the 17th century decorate the gallery balustrades; they illustrate scenes from the Bible and particularly Christ surrounded by the 12 apostles. The Silbermann organ, built in 1778 (and restored in 1968) tops the Presidents’ gallery.
