“Lovely Church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2012

The church is beautiful. There is so much to see inside with gorgeous alters and carvings. It is in stark contrast to the quiet peaceful vibe of the town. The remains of what we presumed to be a saint are in the church. When I googled the name above the remains, I did not find any information. The digital tour inside the church does not mention it at all. If anyone has any information, I would appreciate it.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2011

We dropped in here while we were strolling around town and could not believe our eyes. The interior is fantastically ornate and colourful. Really beautiful. My husband and I looked at each other and said WOW at the same time. It was very cool (very hot outside) and peaceful and free! So it's a must to visit.

“Quaint Bavarian town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2011

Oberammergau was a beautiful little Bavarian town. The church was so lovely. All the buildings in the town have paintings on the walls. Wood carving shops everywhere.
