It is thought that this romantic little church dates back to about 1181.
The impressive tower, which still stands today, originates certainly from the 12th century. By 1505, the church had been completed, despite difficulties in building such a stunning masterpiece on top of verical rock faces.
During the harsh religious wars which followed, the church (which has 2 aisles) was used alternately by both Catholics and Protestants. It remained the pride of the salt miners and rich country people alike.
Since 1939, the upkeep has been the responsibility of this small, local parish, and has also benefitted from donations from Friends and visitors.
The Catholic "Pfarrkirche" was completely restored in 2002!
