The parish church of St. Nicholas in Röschitz, Lower Austria, is a historic Roman Catholic church that is part of the Sitzendorf deanery and is protected as a cultural monument. The history of the church dates back to 1198, when Röschitz was first mentioned in writing. In 1648, the church, along with many other buildings in the village, was destroyed during the Thirty Years' War. Subsequently, a new church was built between 1768 and 1782 under the direction of the builder Leopold Wißgrill. Architecturally, the church is late Baroque with a tower on the west side. The interior decoration of the church is baroque-classical from the period around 1780, with neo-Baroque paintings from 1888/89 by Franz Xaver Schönbrunner. The historic organ from 1787 by Josef Silberbauer, which has been restored several times over the years, is also an important feature.
