“Stunning”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Stunning church with a massive round domed roof, just slightly wider than St Pauls. It has been beautifully restored and has an amazing tranquil atmosphere with light streaming in through the windows. Well worth a visit

“Prepare to be dazzled.”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Dull and gloomy from the outside my wife looked in and came out telling me to prepare for a shock. It is a shame to spoil the surprise but other reviewers have given it away. Think Zara's wedding on a grand scale, i.e. the iside is all dazzling white (Including seating etc) apart from the ceiling painting in the huge dome.Walk round the corner to the right and the front of the older abbey buildings remain .

“Take time out to visit....”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Surpring to find such an impressive and imposing building in a small town tucked away in the Black Forest. The original Abbey was destroyed by fire in the late 18th Century and the Domed building which now stands here was rebuilt in the Baroque style. Worth a visit. Free entry. Can't miss it, right in the centre of town, riverside location. Nice cafes too. See website for concerts and events.

“Magnificient Basilica”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

As someone has already written, you simply would not expect to find a Basilica having such dimensions in a town over the mounain. If from the outside of the cathedral you get speechless, once you go inside you get breathless. It is simply marvellous, so white and with huge columns white as well.
If you go by car, you can find free parkings (max 2 hours from Mon.-Fr.) in the Umgehungstrasse, just before the supermarket.
