This beautiful church cannot fail to impress-even if you are not a church goer! The light, happy atmosphere of the interior and the exquisite art of murals and statues gives the visitor a good impression of baroque art. The church is off the beaten track,...More

The view of lake Konstanz alone would justify a stop. The inside of the church is breath taking. There is a vineyard next to it. A small café is available with items for sale.
