  • All weather

The church is located in Hinterstadt, right next to the Heimathaus St Ulrich's Church in the Hinterstadt was first mentioned in a document in 1391. However, a first chapel was certainly built on this site as early as the 12th century in connection with the planned construction of the town. It was the starting point for the church consecration festival, which later developed into the St Ulrich's Day fair. In 1458, the judge and council donated a benefice for the church. In 1510, the town acquired the house next to the church for the benefice, which today houses the Heimathaus. From 1550 to 1625, the benefice was held by Protestant clergymen. This period also saw the overpainting of the 15th century Gothic frescoes in St Ulrich's Church.

The interior of St Ulrich's shows a two-aisled hall church with a net- and cross-ribbed vaulted choir and nave, typical of Upper Austrian late Gothic architecture. The building is attributed to Stephan Wultinger from Vöcklabruck and was built in the second half of the 15th century. The baroque altars made of precious marble and the pulpit are works from the second half of the 18th century. The exterior of the church was renovated in 2003
