    The new construction of the Castle Church of St. Marien from 1732 to 1739 at the south-eastern end of the island next to the castle is considered the first of Bagnato's numerous church buildings. The castle church is a rectangular hall church, 20 meters long and 9.5 meters wide, with a semi-circular altar house. Superposed rectangular fields structure the outer front, with the side walls featuring arched windows. A gable rises above the west wall and above it the tower structure with a curved tower dome.
    The interior is divided into a rectangular nave with the semicircular chancel and the organ gallery opposite the altar. It is furnished with altars, pulpit and sculptures by Joseph Anton Feuchtmayer (1696-1770). Franz Joseph Spiegler (1691–1757) added the high altar painting and the ceiling frescoes in 1737/1738. His works are embedded in the extensive stucco work by Francesco Pozzi (1704-1789). Johann Baptist Babel (1716-1799) contributed a Black Madonna to the decor. The two side altars have very animated figures of angels. The left side altar is crowned by a figure of the martyr Sebastian, the right by one of St. Nepomuk. The altarpiece of the high altar shows Mary with the child, the holy family and John the Baptist. The ceiling frescoes also deal with the life of Mary. In the crypt is Bagnato's tomb. The Castle Church is considered the starting point of the Upper Swabian High Baroque and is used as a wedding church.
    The original organ, built by the Constance master Johann Michael Bihler (1687/88–after 1763) and decorated by Feuchtmayer, was sold in 1823 and replaced around 1860 by a new organ in the late Classicist style. The builder is not known. The slider chest instrument has 11 registers on a manual (Principal 8', Bourdon 8', Violflöte 8', Octave 4', Spillflöte 4', Superoctave 2', Mixtur IV 11⁄3', Cornet III) and pedal (Bourdon 16', violone 8', trombone 8'). The actions are mechanical. In 2017 the instrument was overhauled by the Mönch Orgelbau company.
