The most striking feature on this medieval Gothic church is its 300-foot bell tower, which towers over the village.
The vaunted German pedantry in maintaining the protocols of the City Council allows us to trace even the date of the decision on the construction of the Church. And okay would this was XX century. No, 17. Oktober 1427. The Church was built quite quickly according to medieval concepts. The choir was completed in 1451. The Foundation 90. towers in 1454. The tower itself was completed in 1490. The magnificent vault was built in 1505. However, the Catholics did not enjoy the beauty for long. Luther nailed his theses to the door of the Church in Wittenberg and the reformation began in Germany and the Church became Protestant by 1525. The Church survived the traditional three evils that threatened German churches: the Reformation, fires, and American bombers. Anabaptists not destroyed all interiors Church, the American bomb engulfed in Church 30 March 1945, but only one. It destroyed the "Steinmeyer" organ installed in 1889. For some reason, it is the organs are unlucky in this Church. A fire on 2 February 1974 destroyed the old 1610 organ. But the altar was preserved. Unfortunately, it is now under restoration and it is difficult to consider it. A mandatory item in the tourist program is a visit to the Church bell tower - Daniel's tower, which offers excellent views of the city and the crater in which the city stands.
