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.

I visited this church on a rainy day in June.After passing through a grave yard a very old handcrafted door opens into the church.This is a Catholic Church,beautiful Wal paintings with a cupola painted and a Chrystal chandelier hanging down on a long chain.The seats are made of pine and you can tell they have been used for centuries.The altar is decorated in gold and silver and you can tell this is a very rich church.A very nice organ oversees the church and it powerful sound is nice to listen too.It is well worth it to take some time to visit this gem.
