Sights in the municipality:
The church "Maria im Birnbaum", that is a pilgrimage place and was sacred to St. Jacob. The core comes from the Middle Ages. Its altar was built in earlier Baroque style. The church was rebuilt during the years 1744-49. Originally it used to be a Romanesque church with only one nave but in 1710 it was enlarged and rebuilt to Baroque style. During the restoration in 1998 the original entrance to the church was discovered. It comes from 1700 and it was probably the entrance to the tomb of aristocratic family of Walterskirchens. It was fixed and declassified.

The castle Walterskirchen was rebuilt to the style of historic romanticism in 19th Century. Its core comes from 16th – 17th Century. Originally it was called Wassenburg (12th Century) and it was the original residence of aristocratic family. The history of Wolfsthal and also the life of its citizens were connected with the life of this family for centuries. At the present time the castle is settled by the family of Walterskirchens.
