    Massive plastered hall church with retracted choir and southern choral side tower and hipped roof construction, spire with clock core and spitzauslaufender hood.
    At its core, the church is late Gothic, after the city fire in 1632 was 1635-1688 (!) The restoration. A tower elevation 1743-45 and an increase in the nave walls (> Oval window and 2nd gallery) in 1784, the current appearance.
    The church is listed as a monument D-4-74-176-3.
    The Muggendorf market was already mentioned in documents in 1248/49, when he arrived at the castle Neideck (= Schlüsselberger). The first written mention of the church can be found in the heiress of Gottfried I. in 1308. Until their downfall in 1347, the Schlüsselberger had the right of patronage. In 1507/08 Georg von Streitberg sold his land to the Margrave Friedrich von Brandenburg-Bayreuth. As a result, in the Reformation Muggendorf became Protestant. In 1632, during the Thirty Years War, the church was burned down with Muggendorf.
