The church was also a victim of the flames during the town fire in 1823 and was rebuilt in Classicist/Neo-Gothic style in 1826-34.
A Gothic wooden crucifix dating back to the 15th century has been preserved. The original high altar from 1465 is now found in the Alte Pinakothek Art Museum in Munich.
