Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • In Germany, in the Church are many simple but this is different. Quiet and solemn. Well worth a visit.

  • We stayed at a hotel that is located close to this church. It is quite tiny and outwardly not much attention. Inside is another thing, since it is completely filled with frescoes (as it could not be otherwise). However, what most I liked this small village church (and I don't think that I am a morbid person) was its cemetery. Despite the respect that impose me these places, this one seemed a marvel: small, but with an only have seen the Holy fields of Salzburg or Hallstatt and charm that invites you to get to know him.
