You should definitely spend some time admiring all the painted buildings in Oberammeragau! This one in particular has a working artists' studio (we saw a guy carving masks) and a small museum of painted glass and other arts on the upper floor. Free, which is...More

Lovely house with spectacular outside paintings on the walls. It sits in a nice garden, so with the setting probably this is one of the prittiest painted buildings in the town. If your are in Oberammeragau, do not miss it - it in just in...More

Mostly, people will associate Oberammergau with the Passion Play (held every 10 years), but the absolutely incredible paintings on the exterior of the buildings is not to be believed. At the Pilaushaus, it's more of the same. Inside, it's the home for artisans. No one...More

The external walls on the houses in this town were mostly painted with beautiful pictures. Pilatushaus was the best of all. There was no English explanation outside and we only took a few photos from outside and tour around the other sides of the street....More

Walked inside to a couple artists doing carving and making spinning tops. My son especially liked watching the lathe work. The little garden on the side is pretty. Worth walking in to see.

The outside of the building was well-painted and beautiful, this was the only one. When we read the sign at the door, it tuned out to be a live craftsman studio. It was open on a Saturday afternoon during Bavarian holiday. Inside, there was a...More

Stopped by the town for a couple of hours and this is one of those beautifully painted house. There was no sign in English outside the gates so if you didn't read up, we would not know what is expected of inside.

The outside is beautiful, but the real treasures are inside where you can watch craftsmen work. We stopped in on a Saturday afternoon and met a wood carver, a metal craftsman, and a painter. The elderly metal worker didn't speak any English, but when he...More

We walked all over and this building is the best. It has the painting of The Passions of Christ. We enjoyed our day in Oberammergau and would definitely travel there again and take friends or family.
