The Baroque building from 1725 was built on the site of a smaller Gothic church. The mighty west tower was built in its present form a few years later. Except for the first arched window, the tower could have existed since Roman times. Interior furnishings include stucco work, a marble pulpit and wall frescoes. The main altarpiece in the lower right corner shows a view of Unterretzbach in the 18th century. In front of the folk altar is a crypt with a Romanesque vault. The park next to the church served as a cemetery until 1900. The foundations of an ossuary have been discovered in the arch of the wall-like defensive wall.
