Bike Touring Highlight
On the way through Lippertsreute there is always an interesting view of the parish church of Our Lady ...... and it's definitely worth stopping and visiting the church.---
Our LadyThe church was built in 1881/1882 in the neo-Gothic style. It is a brightly plastered hall with four narrow, pointed-arched windows on each of the longitudinal walls and simple buttresses made of sandstone, which also recur in the low recessed choir in the east (with a 3/8 finish). In the west, a mighty tower rises above a square plan with a two-tiered pyramidal roof. The flat wooden ceiling in the nave is based on the character, but not on the construction, of medieval plank ceilings. The chancel is ribbed vaulted and is punctuated by tricolored windows from the Helmle and Merzweiler workshop in Freiburg, showing (from left to right) Saints Joachim and Anna, Mary with Child Jesus and Christ as King of Glory, and Joseph and Mary. The wooden statues of St. Barbara, Apollonia and Catherine from around 1500 are placed in the choir. To the far left is the statue of St. Wendelin. The altarpieces depict St. Wendelin and on the right St. Aloysius.
The rural Mother of God with Jesus Child from around 1460 is also of extraordinary beauty. Large baroque images of the Way of the Cross adorn the walls in the nave. The Gothic risen Christ and two Feuchtmayer angels round off the wreath of valuable figures in the parish church.Source: kath-ueberlingen.de
