Milestones
1891-96 The church of »Neu St. Heribert« was constructed according to Romanesque-Hohenstaufen plans
1951 Following the severe destruction caused by the Second World War to roofs, windows, and the interior, the church was reconstructed

Differently from the original building, the new construction of the church lacks the central tower, the roofs are constructed lower and are lined with timber, ornamental chancel windows were inserted, and the interior sparingly painted.

The church is famous due to its 12th century golden shrine created in Cologne for the relics of the Archbishop and monastery founder, Heribert. On the 12th century golden shrine from Cologne, in addition to the twelve apostles, kings and prophets, as well as Christ and St. Mary with child, the life of St. Heribert is depicted in twelve medallions on the shrine lid.
