Tips

  • Martin Donat

    The Wieskirche is one of the most important sacred buildings in southern Germany. Inside you can admire magnificent rococo decorations, from the outside you can expect an idyllic sight. The church is open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. in summer. A visit to the church on a guided tour is particularly interesting. You can find information here: wieskirche.de/fuehrungen-allgemein.de.html

    The Wieskirche, which is considered one of the most beautiful Rococo buildings in the world, was added to the list of world cultural heritage in 1983. The UNESCO justified this as follows, the Wieskirche "is a masterpiece of human creativity and an extraordinary testimony to a lost culture". The building is considered "one of the most perfect works of art of the Bavarian Rococo".

    In addition to the church interior, which blooms in glorious stucco work, but never looks overloaded or too lush, the architecture of the ingenious inner column wall is striking.

    Every year, a million people from all over the world visit the Wies - and they can't help but be amazed: the wonderful shapes and colours, the light-filled cheerfulness of the room, the deeply religious piety of the depictions - and then the experience of beautiful music - that everything becomes a happy overall experience »Wonder Wies«.
    And all these people are right, the Wieskirche (pilgrimage church to the Scourged Savior on the Wies) is the most beautiful church I have ever seen.
    You can currently only enter via the north portal and with a face mask.
