Oberammergau Church, Oberammergau

#1 of 14 in Things to do in Oberammergau
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.

  • Very beautiful baroque-rokokoshnaja Tyrolean Roman Catholic Church in a small town. Next to the Church is a cemetery with interesting sculptures, and around the Church houses with frescoed façades. The people in the Church is never, except for the tourists, but the condition of the temple is very good.

  • A typical Bavarian church with many paintings adorning walls and ceilings. A short walk from the centre of the village.  more »
