Integrated into the rectangle of the monastery complex, the Baroque church, built between 1724-1727, rises almost majestically over the village.

The builder from Voralberg, Peter Thumb, was responsible for the construction.

He created a church building that belongs to the style of late baroque architecture around 1700. The interior impression is dominated by the white painted surfaces. Frescoes and altars, on the other hand, have a complementary effect.

This house of God was dedicated to Saint Peter. The apostle is the patron saint.

Shortly after entering the church, the viewer's eyes inevitably turn to the high altar. This altar has 8 changing pictures,
which are exchanged according to the church year.

The church was built as a monastery and parish church. This can be seen very clearly on the large choir grille, which separates the front part of the church, the so-called choir room (previously reserved for monks!) From the larger part, the parish church. While the Benedictine monks enter the choir room in the so-called choir stalls, the people of St. Peter were given their own parish altar with tabernacle, the Sebastian Altar (right side). On the left side of the nave, there is the Marien Altar with a reliquary.
