The parish church of St. Ulrich bei Steyr belongs to the Steyr deanery in the diocese of Linz. The church is a listed building.
The single-nave, three-bay late Gothic nave with a spacious impression has a newer barrel vault with reticulated ribs from the 19th century. The two-bay ribbed-vaulted choir has a five-aisle closure. On the outside, the nave has stepped buttresses and tracery windows. The tower in the northern choir corner was converted into an eight-sided clerestory in 1868, the end being completed by a pointed helmet. The north and west portals are late Gothic.
The high altar, dating from 1662, was remodelled at the end of the 18th century. The tabernacle in rococo style was made in 1660/1670. The side altars are from 1764. The pulpit is from the end of the 17th century. The choir stalls are marked 1618. There are baroque oil paintings from the 17th century. Two oval paintings Erasmus and Florian were painted in the style of Anton Hitzenthaler the Elder.
