  • Very beautiful church with magnificent works of art such as altars. In addition, paintings, image work. A very beautiful church. An unforgettable visit. Pomp and circumstance.

  • After seeing the Wieskirche (Steingaden), the Asamkirche (Munich) I could not miss the sanctuary Helpers. In fact here Balthasar Neumann gave the best of himself. It is needless to describe the Church, in the internet you can find everything and more ... This church must be seen!

  • When you still are in the area you should give the Basilica a visit and experience its storslåde splendour in both interior design and architecture

  • Parking situation and information is not the best. The view from the mountain is nice and the church is beautiful.
  • Amazing church in Staffelstein.
  • Coming back after many year to this splendid church which we visited often in my childhood as a goal of trekking. From Lichtenfels to Vierzehnheiligen, to the mountain "Staffelberg", over the river to the monastery "Kloster Banz" and back to Lichtenfels to take the train for Coburg. This time in car, only the last meters on foot - and the facade seems to have been treated by the artist Christo - but less artistic, the towers hidden behind plastic. Well, I have the memory of what it really looks like, and I enjoyed the interiors, as always. The light and playfulness, the lightness of the room: I always preferred it to the dark and gloomy atmosphere of so many catholic churches, including the one of Kloster Banz. Rococo pure, an invitation to believe in God, instead of the overwhelming and darkish power which threatens you if you don't. Well, you don't have to believe in God to enjoy the building and the manifest expression of the artist Balthasar Neumann

  • A huge building. From outside as well as inside, very impressive. Very good for a trip. Ample (paid) parking, some are slightly off and you must walk a few minutes. Especially elderly people who are no longer good to walk, should take this into account. But there is the possibility, especially for buses, to drive directly up to the Basilica. In addition to a great landscape, where you can make beautiful walks, restaurants offer the opportunity to feed themselves relaxed.
