The church was built around 1300, and was mentioned for the first time in written sources in 1365. During the Reformation from 1581 to 1706, the church was used by Protestants. In 1611, it was rebuilt in the renaissance style, the presbytery and the ground floor of the tower were then given vaults. In 1900, the roof was renovated, and minor adjustments were made in the 20th century.
