The little chapel in the middle of the square, "The Chapel of Grace", has been the site of religious pilgrimages for over 500 years, and currently over 1,000,000 pilgrims come here every year. It's a beautiful place to spend an afternoon or a weekend.

This town square has a large lawn and is surrounded by Catholic churches, religious shops and restaurants. It is very nice and usually quite peaceful to sit there and read or have a snack.

With Grace Chapel as its focal point, the square has wonderful buildings surrounding it. They are low lying so that the sun is alway present. Filled with shops and cafes. You could spend hours here.

Didn't realize this was such a pilgrimage destination until we started walking around the area after our late night arrival. Lovely area, many religious sites to see. Lots of shops selling souvenirs and religious items, as well as many cafes and restaurants.

This is a typical square of a typical Bavarian town. But it is really well-kept and surrounded beautiful buildings. There are many cafes and restaurants that you can enjoy some drinks or sweets or meals. There is a big grass area on the square.

One of the most beautiful squares I have ever seen in Bavaria. Sit at one of the many biergardens to sip on lovely local Helles whilst watching the pilgrims on the square. Locals in their Trachten, tourists, and the devout make for excellent people watching....More
