 The brick church was erected with a flat-roofed nave and a rib-vaulted choir around 1360. In 1835 the half-timbered roof tower was rebuilt. Among the preserved medieval furnishings are the altar cross, a bronze bell and the tabernacle, which was carved from a single oak trunk. The Baroque pulpit is also worth mentioning (built in 1653).
