One person in our group had been to this church before ... seems like a church out in the countryside, on a farm owned by a family, complete with tourist center and restaurant nearby. Aside from the tourist center, it is not a touristy destination...More

Wonderful church to tour. The inside is amazing and so well taken care of. They still hold services here and when they are having one the church is not open for touring or photographs

Wow! Never expected such a masterpiece in the middle of the most picturesque setting. No town nearby, truly this church was built on faith. And the Frescas are absolutely fantastic! Must see

We were driving from Fussen to Oberammergau, to Salzburg and just happened to see a brown informational sign on the side of the road telling us that something of interest was off in that direction. On a whim, we decided to go see what it...More
