The Church of St. Peter and Paul was built on a 35m x 12m floor plan and its architecture with special frontage articulation as well as its interior decorations are impressive. It was built in the Neo-Gothic style after a project by Vinzenz Baier. The high altar, with statues of St. Peter and Paul, accompanied by St. Aloysius and St. Hubertus, is complemented by two side altars, with statues of the Virgin Mary and Christ. All the altars were made by carver J. Firresser from Tirol. The interior of the church is illuminated by a large chandelier as well as from thirteen windows, three of them being beyond the high altar and the others on either side of the nave. The church spire is 50 m tall, decorated with an iron cross on top.
