An interesting church well worth visiting to see the extensive work to reveal the foundations and original wall paintings. The baroque interior was well worth seeing as were the graves in the cemetery up against the city walls. Of the churches in Fussen it is...More

The architecture is quite old and intimidating and for somehow particularly interested in history/architecture, this might be quite a good place to visit.

When Fussen is overrun with tourists - and it is and will be - the monastery is a great break from the main drags and shops. Quiet, sedate, calm, it's a lovely spot and worth a visit. There won't be any Fussen stuff to buy.

Walk through the cemetery to get to this church the path will then lead your past houses to the river which is a beautiful shade of blue. Nice refuge after the crowds at the castles. Nice walk when staying in Fussen

Monastery grounds and landscaping to soothe the eye. The kloster itself your usual understated simplicity - a relief from the gothic to baroque grandiosity of the bulk of other churches. A place for serenity and contemplation, and a delightful interlude so close to all the...More

Excellent church with some good altarpieces. A little out of the town centre so it probably gets fewer visitors than it deserves. It had a pretty little music box which we found rather fun for 20 cents.
