From the outside the church looks very plain but inside it is very impressive, with amazing paintings on the ceiling, very ornate alter and side alters. If you don't make a visit, you will be missing out!

Beautiful outside, and gorgeous inside. It was built in the early 1700's. The grounds around the church are interesting and well cared for with gorgeous flowers. Worth the trip!

I love the Catholic churches in Bavaria and this is one of the best. The art, the decorations, carving, architecture, furnishings are all perfect and lend beautifully to an aura of reverence and devotion that Oberammergau is famous for (the Passion Play). I stop here...More

Visited this beautiful Catholic Church during the day and also attended Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve. I'm not particularly religious, let alone Catholic, but the sheer beauty and splendour of the architecture and art is impressive! Definitely worth a visit!
