The church of Hohnstädt is a 13th-century Romanesque church with a tower above the choir century. The late-Gothic chapel with a ribbed vaulted ceiling, dated 1480, serves as a vestry. It contains a marble relief alter, a pulpit (made of Rochlitzer porphyry) and a baptismal font from 1661. In 1896, the tower was heightened by 17 m. The choir with an apse is bordered by two triumphal arches on cornices facing the nave. 
In 1999, the evangelical Lutheran parishes of Hohnstädt and Beiersdorf joined to form the parish of Hohenstädt-Beiersdorf and created a sister church relationship with the parishes of Grimma, Nerchau, and Döben-Höfgen. Text: Klaus Gernhardt

The chancel of the church dates from the 12th century. The nave is medieval. In 1857/58, an extension was built. Urban Kreutzbach from Borna built a two-manual organ in 1858, which was fundamentally restored in 1993 by the company Wünnig, Großolbersdorf. As a part of the parish of Grimma, demanding programmes are regularly played on the organ.
