Ładny zadbany kościół. Dobre nagłośnienie, Ciekawe kazania.

The church dates back to the turn of the century, built in brick in the Gothic style. The equipment of the church comes from the Baroque period, although there are Gothic, Renaissance and Neo-Gothic elements. Over the centuries, the temple was destroyed by fire and robbed of the equipment by invaders and rebuilt. The church received its current shape in the nineteenth century.

Nice nineteenth-century church. Beautiful frescoes on the ceiling (renovated) and on the walls (waiting for refreshment). An interesting fact is the cross on the altar from the Castle in Golub (i.e. from another parish, currently another diocese and sometime from another country

Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg

The Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg is situated in a strategic area on a rocky spur overlooking the Upper Rhine Plain, it was used by successive powers from the Middle Ages until the Thirty Years' War when it was abandoned. From 1900 to 1908 it was rebuilt at the behest of the German kaiser Wilhelm II. Today it is a major tourist site, attracting more than 500,000 visitors a year.

The first records of a castle built by the Hohenstaufens date back to 1147. The fortress changed its name to Koenigsburg (royal castle) around 1157. The castle was handed over to the Tiersteins by the Habsburgs following its destruction in 1462. They rebuilt and enlarged it, installing a defensive system designed to withstand artillery fire.

The fortification work accomplished over the 15th century did not suffice to keep the Swedish artillery at bay during the Thirty Years War, and the defences were overrun.
