Wies Church, Steingaden

Wies Church became a pilgrimage site after the figure of the Scourged Savior began to weep tears in 1738. Local authorities converted a hasty chapel into a Rococo church in the late 1740s, hoping to make the supernatural visible. UNESCO recognized the church in 1983 as a World Heritage site. The setting, other attractions nearby, and the surprising size of this rural church make it worth the drive out here.

  • If you are in the Allgäu region, it is worth to take a detour to Pfaffenwinkel in the world-famous pilgrimage church of Wies. In November, we could really enjoy the Church were very few tourists spot, which is certainly different in the summer.

  • Located in an idyllic village of Munich to the Southwest, about 100 km from the Romantic Road off. Splendor of Germany Rococo-style decoration for external and internal gap is very attractive. Along with the bucolic atmosphere of the area, became a favorite place.

  • If your traveling on the Romantic Road (by bike or car) this is well worth a visit. Do pay a visit to their website to check visiting times as you can’t visit during services. During the summer months I stop by about once a week on one of my bike rides. Good restaurant nearby as well.
  • A UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE.....well worth a visit, especially if you ' re touring the castles of Ludwig II in Bavaria. A Rococo gem!
  • Beautiful church. Definitely worth visiting if you're on the Romantic road.
