St Mary’s Town church was probably already founded before 1223.
A parish church was first mentioned in 1310. It was incorporated into the convent in 1325. Conflicts were therefore inevitable. The Reeves of Gera had to mediate between the lords of Saalburg and the convent in 1361, because the priest did not live in the town, but near the convent. 

The structure of St Mary’s Church is old. The tower stonework dates back to the 14th century. The chancel and nave were built in the 15th century. They were perhaps constructed as a result of a fire. Fires damaged the building in different ways during the ensuing period too. Its interior furnishings date back to the 17th century.
