St. Catherine´s church was built in 1360 and consecrated in 1365. The church is a perfectly preserved example of the high Gothic style. The "Kupferschmied-Altar" (coppersmith´s altar) is a gem. The winged altarpiece, created between 1513 and 1515, is the only one to survive in the region and is recognized as one of the early masterpieces of that period. The church was restored in 1950 and is now used as a war memorial. A carillon, placed inside the former fire watch room of the tower, is rung daily at 11.00 a.m. and 05.00 p.m., in memory of the fallen of the Second World War.
The built church served as a place of worship in times of war and epidemic danger. The "Kupferschmidaltar" is the only winged altar still preserved in the district. Like the figures of the apostles Andrew and James in the choir and the Madonna enthroned on the south wall, it dates from around 1500. The round window with the arch motif on the west side, like the copper plaques with the names of the fallen, reminds us of the church's purpose as a war memorial. war memorial. In the old fire watch room of the tower, the carillon commemorates the victims of war.
