Today's Marienkirche was founded in the 13th century on a former Romanesque stone church (probably dating from 1165-1170). The building underwent many changes during the Reformation, but also in the 18th century, when Baroque elements were added to the church. In the years 1878-1880, the Baroque tower was replaced by a neo-Gothic tower with a pointed helmet.
The church of Sainte-Anne was built in 1845 on a hill called "le Calvaire". It includes 800 m2 of astonishing frescoes created in 1956 by Nicolaï Greschny, an Estonian painter.

It was after successive embankments of the cemetery, then during the construction of "The High Church" in the twelfth century, that this church was transformed into a "Crypt".
