“So beautiful church!”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

The interior awed me with its various sculptures and fresco paintings. It is situated in a peaceful old town a with lots of woodcarving shops to choose from for a souvenir.

I read a lot of the Oberammergau Passion Play and the special choice of castings too. Very interesting event to witness.

“Stunning”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

The church was breathtaking - we visited twice during our stay in Oberammergau, but we also loved walking through the graveyard surrounding the church. It was very well kept, and looked like a garden. It was a very peaceful part of our walk after dinner.

“Plain and Simple”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

The Lutheran church near the Passion Play theater is open to the public. You can just walk in and rest for a while, or sit and reflect. After seeing many great cathedrals, it is interesting to note that simplicity can be spiritual as well.
