Not my tradition. Very interesting. The very tidy cemetery also led to much research and speculation about the towns history.

This highly decorated church is a good example of Late-Baroque into Rococo. The organ case is absolutely magnificent. In the town's museum there was a large elaborate Nativity scene which is brought into this church for Christmas.

Having been to Europe many times and multiple cities in Germany this church by far took my breath away. The pictures will show for themselves just why I hope you enjoy them and visit.

Oberammergau church was one of those unexpected presents we received when we enter it. The Rococo style and the pink colours were so romantic that I could imagine you it could have been to marry there. What an amazing place!

Stunning church, I just wish there was an organ recital so I could sit and absorb the beauty better. A truly beautiful building.

Everywhere you go in Oberammergau you see remarkable examples of painted frescoes on many of the buildings but the frescoes inside of the church are gorgeous! The altar is surrounded by examples of gold gilt Baroque sculptures. The church is actually a working parish, St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church so religious ceremonies will be observed.

Thank dineen74
