1551 - 1563 The nave was renovated.
1433 The St. Anthony chapel was added on the north side. This space was redone in 1512 - 1516, and was then further enlarged by a small Marian choir about 1626 (1526?) and again in 1556 with a new St. Anthony's Chapel. The rich furnishings are excellent early and late Gothic and Baroque works. Since the dissolution of the Franciscan monastery in 1838, parts of the monastery and the cloister have vanished, with only the part abutting the main church hall preserved as a sacristy and rectory.

A protected historical monument since 1964
