Amazing view
Oct 2019
The church is located in the very good location which is surrounded by green field with Dolomites background. Worth to visit but need to check the weather or you won’t see the mountain background in cloudy day. There is some public parking nearby with fees. You have to pay for access at the entrance & make sure that you have enough coins.

So amazing that it seams not to be true!

It's a petty that they closed the entrance to the church, and you have to pay to arrive close to it (because obviously it can't be that people go through the grass from all sides), but when you are there you will seriously ask yourselves if all that beauty can be true. I saw it on a sunny cloudless day, so who has the possibility choose to visit it at a day of nice wheather

Cute little church
Jun 2019 • Family
This is small church in the middle of green meadow in Ranui, Val di Funes. The access to the church is by walking the green grass path leading to the church. The view of Puez Geissler Odle mountain in the background makes the church is picture perfect photo spot. This is one of the two best spot of Dolomites church. Even just small spot, lots of pictures left memorable place in Dolomites area.

Normal business

Entering in the church costs 4€, it's a sheer business. A real pity, because it's a religious area. You can make the photos in the distance, without paying a lot.

The jewel of The Dolomites aka Kirche St Johann
Oct 2018 • Couples
The church itself is charming and approachable. There is a nice hotel where we had coffee and cake and then could easily walk to the church. There are roped fences to keep you in the path close to the church so you are not allowed to just wander the valley. If you choose to wait for sunset and try and take the magnificent photo with the mountains you must walk back along the wooden fence and stand in an area with numerous photographers. We were lucky enough to get the incredible shot that photographers from all over the world travel here to capture. We flew our drone and saw others who were far more adventurous with their drones.

A delight of the valley

Wasn’t lucky enough to the see scene with the mountain behind but this is still wonderful to see with the great lawn at its forefront. The walk around the church is pleasant and you enjoy the solitude moment most of time.

Photographers dream!
May 2018 • Couples
This delightful little church sits in a meadow at the base of the magnificent Geisler mountains forming the perfect frame for your images. It is difficult to photograph up close due to restrictions on the access path but there were several points along the road for the adventurous photographer to climb up to. Popular spot at sunrise and sunset.

Wonderful place
Oct 2017 • Family
This little church with the Geisler mountain as backdrop is the most-photographed place of the Dolomiti mountains area. The church located at a large meadow where you can see just a few cows eating grass tranquilly. You are allowed to get into this meadow and to be very near to the church if you want. Million words can not give the feeling only if you see there using your own eyes. :)
You can get there with the bus 340 from Bressanone/Brixen and get off at the stop names St. Magdalena, Ranui, then all the scenery I said above will show in front of your eyes. But I recommend you to rent a car (maybe at Brixen, that was also what we did) because the 340 passes infrequently and it will be much easier to visit this church and the puez-geisler national natural park.

Plan your visit - by bus and by weather
Oct 2017 • Couples
This place is often shown often in Dolomite photographs but there's so little information on how to get here.

The main way is to get the #340 bus from Brixen main bus station. Its last stop is Ranui - and this particular church is just a few minutes up the road (towards the right) from the Ranui bus stop.

The meadow next to it is roped (private property) off so you don't get a lot of opportunity for different angle photographs - but walking up that road you'll see an opening towards the right near a hotel, follow it and you'll see the church.

But what the roping off means is you can't really position yourself in the meadow to get a great shot of the church - the only shot possible is from right in front. Or if you have a great telephoto/zoom lens, you can sort of stand by the meadow fence JUST near the bus stop and zoom in. If you go early in the morning, the sun is just behind it so you'll get a blown-out background. Try a little later in the day. Balance THAT with the infrequency of bus #340 - it only goes back to Brixen once an hour so don't be *too* late.

Also I'd recommend going when it's partly cloudy, it adds to the Dolomite effect of the photo.

Overall I found it to be an OK visit, the meadow being closed off sort of took away the 'magic' of the anticipation.
