“Must See!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Beautiful in all seasons but especially in the fall. Great holy place to find God or reconnect. Church, Tower with great views, gift shop and even a cafeteria, all in the beautiful hills of the Kettle Moraine.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

When we visited our family in the Delafield area, they suggested going to Holy Hill. We took the long stroll up and back down the hill. It was a pleasant walk and the fall colors were breathtaking. The Basilica is beautiful and is a must see if you are in the area.

“A Touch of Heaven to the Heart and Eyes.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

We took a drive to Holy Hill to see the color this year but ended up just enjoying the wonderful renovations that have been done to the Basilica. The stained glass was breathtaking. The new paint just made the arches standout with the touches of gold on the ornate parts. It truly made you feel closer to God. Like sitting in a part of Heaven.

Then when you went out side on the deck or climb the steps to the top of the towers the view will just blow you away. This year the color was unbelievable. The drive up was just breathtaking and made for such a special drive. Just a perfect area and place to take pictures of a beautiful Basilica and unbelievable color.

“Best place to see the fall colors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

We try to go here every fall because the church is beautiful and it's the highest point in the area so combine the two and you are guaranteed to have a great day! It can get pretty crowded on weekends, so if you are able to go during the week, it may be better. We arrived just before noon and got to hear the service music and the church bells ringing clearly. The tower is accessible if you give a donation and if you're able- DON"T MISS THIS! It can be frightening for those who are afraid of heights because as you get nearer to the top, the windows are wide open, but the view is breathtaking. You can see for miles. We ate at the cafe and got a sandwich and drink for less than $10 per person. The soups are always good and must be home made. If you have a stroller or wheelchair, go straight through the gift shop level and there is an elevator that takes you up to the church where the services are held. From there is a good view too.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

Holy hill is a peaceful and beautiful place. The stain glass windows are breath takingly beautiful. The view from the top level is just gorgeous. On clear days you can see for miles. Fall is great for a ride to view the fall colors. When arriving holy hill looks like a castle from afar. Reminder this is a functioning church and services go on everyday so people visiting need to respect this. This is handicapped accessable, however is a long walk and elevator to get to the churches and landing.
