Oberammergau Church, Oberammergau

(4.8/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
This Rococo church, consecrated in 1749, was designed by well-regarded German architect Joseph Schmuzer. Admire the grandeur of the interior and its ample use of marble and gold. Murals depicting The Lord's Prayer and Ave Maria, the two central prayers in Catholicism, are particularly striking. Look for the representations of St. Peter and St. Paul (the church patrons) in the nave, parapets, and the high altar. It's worth taking a short walk through the well-maintained cemetery, which has many interesting headstones.

  • This is absolutely a phenomenal church for a village of this size and a must-see if you're already in the area.  more »
  • Don't stop outside: wonder's inside! Baroque interior, with statues carved by local artisans ' 700 famous at the time across Europe. The nave begins surmounted by a beautiful mezzanine for organ and closes towards the altar richly decorated. The time presents decorative designs on an unexpected pink background. Well worth a visit.
