On the site of the church, a small church was built in the 7th century, founded by St. Clodulfus. Until 1860, the village had a medieval church.
The church was built in the period 1860-1862 and designed by Carl Weber. Due to probable financial problems, it took until 1879 before the church was finally finished.

Saint Martin, to whom this church is consecrated, is - next to Saint Nicholas - one of the most popular saints of all. The memorial day of the former officer in the Roman army is November 11th. On the night after the famous “coat sharing”, when he surrendered half his army cloak to a freezing beggar, Jesus Christ appears to him in a dream. He converted to Christianity and was later - initially against his will - elected Bishop of Tours (France).
Many should have fond childhood memories of lantern handicrafts in kindergarten and elementary school, the evening lantern parade through the dark village / district - and of course of the delicious "Weckmann".
