The history of the city church can be traced back to the year 1336. The old church stood on the market place until 1832; today, all that is left there is a star in the pavement. It was dedicated to Saint Nicholas, patron saint of merchants. In 1684 the church fell victim to a city fire, but was rebuilt. In the great city fire in 1832 the church burned down again, and while it was rebuilt, it now stands on the Kellerberg. 1839 was the laying of the foundation stone, 1842 the inauguration. The construction of the church cost 51,264 thalers. The Saxon Ministry of Culture supported the construction and the state of Saxony wrote a collection. Inside the church are three galleries. The interior design is dominated by the colours light blue, white and gold. The organ was built by Borna organ master Urban Kreuzbach.

Waldheim is a station on the Saxon Luther Trail.
