It is a rectangular, rendered hall church with a ridge turret in the middle – and probably dates back to a medieval church structure. 
The church was modified in the 16th century and was given its  Baroque design in 1744, which is still visible today. It was renovated in 1954. In front of the balustrades at the upper galleries, there are carved figures from a former altarpiece, which dates back to about 1510. The coat of arms of the Barons of Pöllnitz decorates the entrance by the western portal. The interior has a panelled ceiling and a two-storey gallery.
