Nr. on the small map: 4 (Bürgstadt)

When on March 12th, 1961, the New Parish Church was inaugurated by Bishop Josef Stangl, a long-cherished venture of the locals had finally come true. At the end of the 19th century, additions to the existing Parish Church had already been planned which, more or less, would have amounted to a completely new construction. By choosing a new location near the cemetery, it was guaranteed that the Old Parish Church kept dominating the historic heart of Bürgstadt, while the new-built church would accentuate the surrounding development area. Nevertheless, not only the name was adopted from the Old Parish Church, the late Gothic Pieta and the sculpture of Madonna and Child with Saint Anne from the Riemenschneider School had originally been part of the Old Parish Church.
