The Church of Our Lady was built in several stages over the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries. This historic Gothic temple today serves as the monastery church of the Capuchin Brothers and the rector church. Its interior impresses with remnants of medieval and baroque equipment.

The performance of the high choir designed by Jörg Östereicher completed the work on the temple. In the second half In the 18th century, the style of the church was partly changed to baroque.
