Culture and places of interest[edit]

St.Cyriacus Church

The Church of St. Cyriacus is already mentioned in one of the oldest records of the village dating to 1235. The former clock tower collapsed in 1634 and was rebuilt in 1703. The nave was widened in 1640 and from 1963 to 1964 the church was extensively modernised. During the renovation work inside the church, valuable wall paintings, believed to stem from the 15th century, were discovered.
