Architectural style:
The original building was executed in the Baroque style (preserved on the original plans). Master builder was Johann Lechner in 1754.

The altar painting, in the Baroque style:was made by Ferdinand Schiessl in 1761.
Original tower engineer was Johann Theodor Kostka 1774.

The oldest photos show the building without the tower, confirming that the original tower no longer existed.
Between 1888 and 1890, the façade facing the street and its tower, as well as the dome covering the central area, were completely rebuilt.

The current visual expression belongs to the eclectic Classicist style, typical for the second half of the nineteenth century. The full center arch and the Corinthian pilasters at first floor are typical elements of this style.

With all subsequent transformations, the shrine keeps the original painting of 1761.
