Parish Church of St Jakob

This triple-aisled church has a simple exterior but complex and marvellous star-shaped, ribbed interior vaulting. Apart from the high altar, with its magnificent sculptures and canopy, note the stone pulpit from 1555. Along the exterior and interior of the south wall there are numerous 15C-18C tombstones. In Summer, visitors can climb to the top of the steeple and enjoy a fine panorama.
