It's just crazy how elaborately beautiful this church is, particularly since it is basically in the middle of nowhere. Possibly the most beautiful church I have ever seen. Very interesting history too. Definitely worth a short visit if you are in the area!

I took my US roommates there 25 years ago and my children last year (ages 10 and 12). It is an amazing experience. The interior is absolutely breathtaking.

This church has been well preserved. While the exterior reflects a plain church. The intererior is a beuaty to behold. On the day we visited it was surrounded by snow. This made the visit even more magical.

Built as a pilgrimage church in the mid-1700's, the Wies Church is off the main highway, tucked into beautiful fields with a peaceful lack of commercialized tourism. While most older churches are dark, this church's light interior shows off the Rococo architecture, frescoes and statuary...More

This is a very beautiful remote church that is not seriously commercialized. The Reformation ruined many German churches, from an artistic point of view, but in southern Germany (Bavaria), you have beautiful unspoiled Catholic churches like this one.

This church is worth any detour. What an amazingly beautiful place. We were fortunate: on the day we visited, a choir, soloists and orchestra were rehearsing for a concert later that evening, and we got to sit and listen. What a glorious experience! But even...More

I'm a castle, fortress, church, and cathedral junkie; this is possibly THE church to visit in Germany, but especially Bavaria. During my visit, there was an organist playing the cathedral size pipe organ--beautifully, I might add. This added a very emotional touch to an incredible...More
