Benediktinerkloster St. Mang, Fussen

4.6
The legend of the local saint, St. Magnus, inspires the frescoes throughout Benediktinerkloster St. Mang, the church of the St. Mang Benedictine abbey. You can't help but be impressed with the facade's detailed stuccowork and the interior's opulent decoration. The abbey was founded in the first half of the 9th century, while its medieval basilica was transformed into a Baroque church in the 18th century. It's still an active church, so those who are interested can attend a service here.

  • We found it by chance going up to the Castle, with which it shares many similarities to the exterior color, or tower. It is a very quiet, little crowded Church and which conveys great peace. Its interior is not lightweight, being pleasantly decorated. It well worth 15 or 20 minutes to feel with peace of mind.

  • Beautiful church through the streets of Fussen. Very well taken care of within. Bavarian Baroque style stands out among the walking route of Fussen, I highly recommend it

  • St. Mang basilica is not part of the usual tourist circuits, and it's a shame because it has a couple of jewels of incalculable value, as the imperial room is lavishly decorated and the chapel of santa Ana with a painting with the usual theme of the stunning death dance, the excavations of the medieval cloister are also. It is a pity that the information is only in German

  • The #Benediktinerkloster St. Mang in #Füssen is absolutely worth a visit for culture lovers and Catholics. Beautiful #Altäre, also have a look in the baptismal Chapel and Saint Magnus.

  • A really nice place. Feet in itself is already a great city and here you can stay a whole day in the city. Delicious ice, delicious food, great streets and buildings.
