This church is worth any detour. What an amazingly beautiful place. We were fortunate: on the day we visited, a choir, soloists and orchestra were rehearsing for a concert later that evening, and we got to sit and listen. What a glorious experience! But even...More

I'm a castle, fortress, church, and cathedral junkie; this is possibly THE church to visit in Germany, but especially Bavaria. During my visit, there was an organist playing the cathedral size pipe organ--beautifully, I might add. This added a very emotional touch to an incredible...More

My husband drove us out here after our tour at Hohenschwangau. We were all tired and really not expecting much from this small rural town. The instant I walked into the church, however, I immediately had to catch my breath. It is indescribably beautiful. I...More

Church might be an understatement. It feels almost like a cathedral, given the scale and the decor. Makes one understand what Luther was ticked off about. I was fortunate enough to be there on a Sunday, so I caught the locals - in full on...More
