It has the Spitalkirsche in der Weitau, Gothic with a fine Rococo interior (1740). It also has the Parish Church. This is the Pfarrkirche (Parish Church) of Maria Himmelfarht.The Church of Maria Himmelfahrt (Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary) dates from 1723-1728. It lays no claim to either the Romanesque or the Gothic periods of architecture. It is pure Baroque in style and content. The exterior and interior are all of the same style. The interior features work by S. B. Faistenberger. He is responsible for the paintings and stuccowork. These include the magnificent vault paintings. The church has a small chapel, St. Anthonys. In it, you can see another Baroque fresco. The work is from a later date. It is by the artist Josef Schöpf (1803).
