The All Saints Church is near the village of Pfaffenreuth , a district of the municipality of Leonberg in the Tirschenreuth district , in a clearing in the Pfaffenreuth forest .

At the end of the 15th century there was already a votive chapel on the site of today's church, which Kornmüller built as a thank you for a herd of cattle that was found again.

After that stood there from 1658 to 1660 a wooden chapel with attached Klause , lived in the known by name to 1803 consecutively ten recluse, three of which have their final resting place in the church.

The current pilgrimage church was built by Philipp Mühlmayr from Bärnau . It was notified by the chaplain at the time after its completion around 1732 .

The interior of the church is kept simple. The hand tabernacle made of pear wood is remarkable . The three altars from Eger come from the wooden chapel from 1656.

The All Saints Church, which has been renovated several times, is a side church of the Wernersreuth parish, where Sunday services are held every fortnight from May to October.
