    The parish church St. Laurentius in Bernau am Chiemsee belongs to the parish association Westliches Chiemseeufer of the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising. It stands on a hill surrounded by a cemetery.
    The church was first mentioned in documents in 1408. It was a branch church of Prien am Chiemsee. In 1806 Bernau became an independent parish. The late Gothic original church was demolished in 1926 due to lack of space and rebuilt and furnished according to plans by Franz Xaver Huf. The tower and parts of the west wall were included in the new building.

    I extend:
    The church is a hall building with a gable roof. The west tower has a pointed helmet. The window paintings from the 19th century and the late Gothic tower are from the previous church. The nave has a barrel-vaulted wooden ceiling and is separated from the narrower choir by a round-arched triumphal arch. The choir with a 3/8 end has a barrel vault with stitch caps. The ceiling painting symbolically shows the Trinity of God in Art Nouveau style. A commemorative plaque marks the location of the high altar.
    The main altar in the presbytery is a free-standing, brick table altar. A crucifixion group (sculptor Johann Nepomuk Petz) is attached to the front of the apse behind and above. It was taken over from the old church. Above the left side altar on the triumphal arch the figure of the enthroned Queen of Mary with child in a halo can be seen, above the right side altar St. Joseph with child. The pulpit dates from the time of the new building. The figures of St. Laurentius and the God-Father relief on the triumphal arch were also created by Petz. The Way of the Cross is from 1930. Additional furnishings include a baptismal font from 1931 with a bronze lid and a bronze baptismal candlestick.
