Maltese Church – Malteserkirche 

 

The Maltese Church is a small church that was built in the 15th century. The site had a previous church that was used by the Knights Hospitaller and a place to take care of crusaders. Later it was redesigned in the Baroque style. In 1857 stained glass was added to the church. After the First World War, the Order had financial trouble and had to sell the church. The last restoration occurred in 1998. The church's high altarpiece was painted in 1730 by Johann Georg Schmidt. There is a red eight-pointed cross in marble above the main door and the star also adorns the altar and the pulpit.
