Oberammergau Church is set back from the main streets but is definitely worth a detour. In contrast to the outside, the interior - with its ceiling frescoes, masonry, sculptures and gold embellishments - is opulent and ornate; overwhelmingly so! At the back of the church...More

I stopped by the church while walking through town. It is small but beautiful and the adjacent cemetery was interesting as you are able to see the old and historical tombstones. Lots of history in the area.

Ornate interior with lots of original features. The pine pews, stairs and gallery are certainly very ancient. The view from the gallery (I hope entry is permitted) is grand. Feels like a sleepy old church in a sleepy old town. Some very interesting history associated...More

A typical Bavarian ‘onion’ dome church. Ostentatious in decor as many other Catholic churches are of this region. Worth popping your head in if you are in the vicinity. Nice churchyard.

Visited this town and church as part of the Grayline Linderhof Newschwanstein tour. Cute little town that hosts the passion play (Christian historical play) every 10 years. The town is also famous for its woodworking artisans

Worth to visit this church if you want a good taste of this famous decoration. We however preferred the Wies one located in Steingaden not so far away which is much better maintained.

We were directed here by our tour guide, and what a delight it is. The plain outside belies a beautiful rococo interior. This is the church where the vow was made in 1633 to perform the Passion Play every 10 years.

The art in this church is amazing. What I LOVED is that they had a device which told you about what you saw and history of the church in English and other languages. So helpful! Do not miss this church, it held me spellbound.

Absolutely beautiful church. We like to visit churches in the towns that we travel through and this is one of the most wonderful ones. A fabulous church in a small but inviting town.
