Long Description:
EN: The Nydegg Church is located at the eastern end of the Old Town. At this point Duke Berchtold of Zahringen built a castle in 1190, which was destroyed in 1270. The church was built from 1341-46. A steeple was added 1480-83 and 1493-1504 the nave was rebuilt.

After the Reformation in 1529 the church was initially used as a warehouse, but after 1566 converted back to a church. In 1863 it was enlarged and completely renovated in 1951-53.
