A great place to enjoy a perfect view on a summer day. The Basilika itself is very impressive with lits of coulorful paintings at ceiling and walls. Great and breathtaking atmosphere.

This beautiful church cannot fail to impress-even if you are not a church goer! The light, happy atmosphere of the interior and the exquisite art of murals and statues gives the visitor a good impression of baroque art. The church is off the beaten track, but it is well known in the area.It should not be missed, if you are in the area.

We spotted what looked like a typical church while passing by the national road and decided to stop as we had a bit of time on our hands. And did we do right! Beautiful view of the lake with at the back scenery the hilly vineyards of southern Germany. And in the middle of all of this the Basilicum! The outside is already prestigious enough and very well kept but the gem lies inside. Stunningly beautiful. A pity I cannot upload any pictures on this review....

Basilica Birnau is a very lovely pilgrimage Baroque church built in 1746-1749 for the Cistercians monastery of nearby Salem. It is located high above Lake Constance, dominating the surrounding countryside between Meersburg and Überlingen, with easy access by car from B31. The church interior is richly decorated with magnificent frescoes, altars and stucco ornaments in rococo style. The Basilica is surrounded by vineyards owned by the monastery.
The terrace outside the church has great views across the lake. There is ample parking space as well as toilets, and a kiosk with drinks and food. Last not least, before leaving the interior of the church do not forget to donate a few Euros for the upkeep of this awesome church.

The view of lake Konstanz alone would justify a stop. The inside of the church is breath taking. There is a vineyard next to it. A small café is available with items for sale.
