  • Very interesting little church with impressive wall paintings. Monument preservation puts much emphasis on the preservation of images, also no visit (except management) is possible in the summer. In the winter, it's very cold, but it has plenty of time and rest, to look at everything.

  • Indeed old. Internal to deploy fully the Otto dynasty of the 10th century mural, is intense. But it seems to be repaired with the help of Japan's.

  • Worth a visit especially for the ancient frescoes dating from around the year 1000. The paintings appear ri. handled and partially redone. Don't lose however the charm of their antiquity. The whole Church is still massive and solemn. It is therefore a unique testimony because they are very few buildings were of that historical period.

  • St. Georg is home of one of the best examples of Romanic frescoes in Western Central Europe, created in the 10th century. The crypta, which is closed to the public, holds the head of St. Georg. After much-needed conservative work, the church is closed for individual tourism from 1st of May to 30th September due to the fragility of the artwork. Groups visits might be possible, but I'm not sure about further restrictions. Besides the 1100 year old frescoes of the eight wonders of Jesus, a curious depiction of gossiping women harassed by demons for not following the sermon can be seen next to the altar. Including the text, written in middle high German, it originates in the 14th century. The apsis in the West has later artwork, which looks baroque to me on a quick glance.
  • A very important church in terms of its influence on art and architecture during the Medieval period. It's quite small but has beautiful paintings on the interior walls. It's definitely worth taking some time to study them closely.
  • A very nice historical place. Here you can enjoy history in complete silence. 👌, a pleasant place for a short stay after a long walk. 👍

  • Featured Church, informative little Museum, just like at other churches. BUT: who has labeled whatever the boards – is the font mostly far too small! Together with the poor lighting, in-depth reading is so very painful. Should penetrate here are repaired.
