4.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web
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.

  • This church surprises, located in the middle of the countryside, surrounded by forests and grasslands, with a sober exterior, even minimalist would say, its interior is an outburst of the rococo. They usually offer concerts of music, I went to one and it is an unforgettable experience. If the climate, up to it would be interesting to take walks on the trails

  • Absolutely stunning church! Stopped by on an early Friday morning en route to Linderhof Palace and found that we were the only car in the parking lot. This church is surrounded by bucolic fields of cows and working cattle dogs, which provided an amazing contrast to the opulent rococo decorations inside. Not to be missed!
  • Impressive but very crowded, can't take pictures inside and you have to pay for parking. The other church in Steingaden, Welfenmünster, was just as impressive and when we went there was only a couple other people.
  • The church is very beautiful, external and even more the interior. Worth the visit and sitting inside.
  • Pictures simply don't do it justice. The scale of the place is awe-inspiring. Schedule some time to take it all in, there are details everywhere. We visited on our way home from Zugspitze, in May. The weather was perfect, the pastures so lush and green, it's a great way to spend an afternoon.
  • This is definitely not to be missed! An awe inspiring piece of architecture and beauty. The price of admission is 0, and absolutely the most beautiful example of baroque-rococo church I have visited.
