The external architecture as the inside was under restoration. Of interest the belfry placed at an unusual angle versus the facade of the church, a feature common to other churches in the city.

Very nice Asam painter brothers church. Historical church with fantastic ceiling fresco. Don't miss it. It is closed to city centre and to the Liebfrauenmuenster.

A small church on a side street in Ingolstadt is easy to miss, but that would be a mistake. Certainly not a grand cathedral with fabulous stained glass, but once you enter this sacred space you may think you have entered heaven.

If you like looking at churches (I do) then Maria de Victoria will be of interest. The exterior is typically German Baroque, but the interior is quite different and really spectacular. You simply must take the time to go inside; the entrance fee is next to nothing.

We were taken to this church by family because she said it had a moving roof. There is a small visitor centre next door and the man opened up for us and led us through the visit so we could see all the amazing features. The relief on the roof actually folows you as you move round. People who were... More
