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.

ミュンヘンから南西に約100km、ロマンティック街道から少し外れたのどかな村にある。外見の質素さと内部のドイツ・ロココ様式装飾の華麗さのギャップは非常に魅力的。周辺の牧歌的な雰囲気も相俟って、お気に入りの場所となった。 more »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.
Fantastic artwork on every detail. Easy access. Deserve a visit, worth a donation...
This is a wonderful stop. The church is beautiful and the cafe next to it has delicious donuts fresh made right in front of you. The staff are kind and speak German and english.
Very beautiful, especially all alone in the snow and bitter cold as we saw it! The holy water had frozen in the fonts!
This is one of the best places to visit if you are a fan of decorated church
