    The Schlierse priest came up with the idea of building a church on Spitzingsee for mountain enthusiasts in the early 1930s. He was able to inspire the Archbishop of Munich and Freising Michael Cardinal von Faulhaber (1869–1952) for the idea and after buying the property, he engaged the young Munich architect Friedrich Haindl (1910–2002) for the planning.The foundation stone was laid in 1937 and the inauguration took place on October 23, 1938. All building materials came from the immediate vicinity, as the church was forbidden from any other procurement by the National Socialists

    Located on the east side of the southern part of the Spitzingsee, around 100 m from the shore. Right in the center of the village of the same name Spitzingsee.

    Catholic branch church, looks a bit gloomy and forbidding.

    Initially looks gloomy and repellent from the outside. Built entirely of gray stone, it has defied the harsh weather conditions in the Bavarian mountains for decades. But anyone who believes that this church has been in its place for centuries is wrong. The foundation stone of the massive structure was laid on August 22, 1937. The initiator of the construction was Adalbert Obermayer, the local pastor of Schliersee at the time. Even then, the Spitzingsee area was very popular with hikers and winter sports enthusiasts. The people made a pilgrimage in droves to the small mountain village and were supposed to have the opportunity to communicate with the Lord there.
