Today's late-Gothic town church of St. Lamperti dates back to a previous building from the 12th century. The sacristy on the north side was added in 1523. 20 years later the first Protestant service was held in the church. By order of the Swedish General Königsmarck, the bell tower was partially demolished in 1643. After the town fires of the 17th century, extensive repair work was carried out. The interior of the church was redesigned in the baroque style and was reconsecrated in 1686. The renovation of the tower took place between 1703 - 1709 under the Dukes of Saxon-Weissenfels. The baroque dome dates back to 1707. Special features are the altar in Weißenfels baroque style and two Romanesque columns, which originate from the former house monastery of the Noble Lords of Querfurt, Mariazell. The organ from the late 19th century is also worth mentioning. It has 32 stops and 1791 pipes
