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.

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.

The Pilate House at Oberammergau is one of the best of the classic luftlmalerei houses (the outside walls are painted with fresco -- pigment applied to freshly laid moist plaster, so the pigment soaks into the plaster permanently) with trompe-l'oeil 3-Dimensional precision. The outside paintings...More
