Impressive!

This very old church is impressive, and beautiful inside. There are also tombs in one of the halls. It is possible to see a real skull in one of them.

This church was here before everything else. It is impressive in its architecture and inspiring in its history. The woodwork on the doors is reason enough to visit. Oh, and by the way, it's free.

One of the many gorgeous historical churches. The door carvings were fabulous. Took a couple tries to get in between masses. Lots of stores around for souvenirs, rosaries, etc. many are open on a Sunday.

Make sure to walk around the church as it looks different from any angle. Abbey Church. During recent excavations a floor plan from 876 was discovered, built by King Carloman. 907 The monastery was destroyed after Hungarian disturbances. Ottonian Basilica anno 1000 was included in the Romanesque Basilica. It became too small for the growing number of pilgrims. 1499-1511 late-Gothic, last Gothic hall church in South Germany. 18.5 m wide, 48.5 m long, the vault coat-of-arms on 12 meters altitude. Two 57 m tall needle-towers with copper helmets. From originally interior: North and South portal in sculpted oak, more than life-sized crucifix on North wall, epitaphs on North and South wall. Various renovations 18th-19th century completely destroyed art treasures of Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque period, such as the stained glass, the choir and the Romanesque tomb of Karolinger King Carloman (never used). Preserved are: Romanesque West portal, main altar from 1800 with painting "Mary, helper of the suffering", choir with relief medallions history of Altötting scenes.
