We didn't realise it was a public holiday so when we couldn't find accommodation in Ettal we went to Oberammergau for a look see. We weren't disappointed. A beautiful town with a religious theme throughout it due to a show that happens once every 10...More

The bell is remembering you the time with one stroke for the quarter, two strokes for the half and the hour are the number of strokes. Inside is very well maintained and outside is surrounded by tombs and graves.

We saw this church and the Wieskirche on the same day. Personally, I liked this one more. Not only is the church beautiful, but the attached graveyard has some very ornate plots,

Oberammergau Church is set back from the main streets but is definitely worth a detour. In contrast to the outside, the interior - with its ceiling frescoes, masonry, sculptures and gold embellishments - is opulent and ornate; overwhelmingly so! At the back of the church...More

I stopped by the church while walking through town. It is small but beautiful and the adjacent cemetery was interesting as you are able to see the old and historical tombstones. Lots of history in the area.

Ornate interior with lots of original features. The pine pews, stairs and gallery are certainly very ancient. The view from the gallery (I hope entry is permitted) is grand. Feels like a sleepy old church in a sleepy old town. Some very interesting history associated...More

A typical Bavarian ‘onion’ dome church. Ostentatious in decor as many other Catholic churches are of this region. Worth popping your head in if you are in the vicinity. Nice churchyard.

Visited this town and church as part of the Grayline Linderhof Newschwanstein tour. Cute little town that hosts the passion play (Christian historical play) every 10 years. The town is also famous for its woodworking artisans

Worth to visit this church if you want a good taste of this famous decoration. We however preferred the Wies one located in Steingaden not so far away which is much better maintained.
