“Cemetary Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

My wife likes cemeteries and so we started off by visiting the one around this church, but once inside, were amazed. The exterior is so plain, it is hard to believe the inside.

“Baroque architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

This is a lovely church in an ancient churchyard. The church is quite new compared to the site, apparently they buried plague victims there before they built the previous church and this one replaced that. There are many different things to see inside the church, the wood painted to look like marble, the decoration of the dome, which has a 3 D effect (kinda) the building itself, all the wooden statues, the altar, etc, etc.
Unusally in a church of this size, there is an excellent information screen you can acess to give you all the history and detail the fine art

“Nice Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

All of Oberommergau is a feast for the eyes. The whole town has lovely Bavarian architecture with folksy murals on many of the walls. Woodcarving is big here. They got great Christmas stores and it's the home of the BIG Passion Play. Since you're there anyway, don't miss the church. It's lovely.

“Our Favorite Church in Bavaria!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We have been all over Europe over the past 3 years and any chance we get to visit Bavaria, we ALWAYS make our way to Oberammagau and it beautiful little church. It may be small, but it is so ornate....so beautiful! The Saint is so intricately adorned with lace, and jewels...you can see what pride they have. The cemetery is the first one we ever saw in Europe and it, too remains our favorite. I know that may sound creepy, but it is equally beautiful. I wish I could attach photos to my review via my iPad.
