The foundations of the town church were laid between 1200 and 1266. The original late Gothic three-nave brick church from the 13th century was redesigned multiple times, as a consequence of several town fires. After having been destroyed in 1945, rebuilding of the church was completed in 1954.

From the top of the 30 metres tall tower of the church, visitors can enjoy panoramic views of the countryside. You can even see far into neighbouring Poland.

Inside the church, there is the sanctuary that was re-designed in 2013 with a glass curtain by Helge Warme, who also created the three choir windows.

One of the church’s crypts is also accessible. It is the resting place of Count Heinrich von Brühl (Saxony’s prime minister under August II and August III, who lived from 1700 to 1763) as well as of the Lords von Biberstein and their families. There is also a modern exhibition about Count von Brühl and his town, including a ten minute film shown in the church’s Bonhoeffer chapel. Another impressive sight is the big Eule organ (1958).

At 2 p.m. on the first Sunday in April and the last Sunday in September, the pastor Christoph Lange holds a MASS FOR MOTORCYCLISTS that is well known far beyond the town and the region.

Modern (accessible) toilet facilities are provided.

The town church is an open church and it is also a cycle path church, thanks to its close proximity to the Oder-Neiße Cycle Path.
