The Franciscan abbey was already destroyed in the war of 1689 when Pforzheim shared the fate of many cities and towns in teh Southwest: being burned down by French troops in the Palatinate War. Only the gothic choir of the abbey church remained. After its destruction in 1945 it was rebuilt in the 1950s in its old shape. It is now a catholic parish church.
