We were directed here by our tour guide, and what a delight it is. The plain outside belies a beautiful rococo interior. This is the church where the vow was made in 1633 to perform the Passion Play every 10 years.

The art in this church is amazing. What I LOVED is that they had a device which told you about what you saw and history of the church in English and other languages. So helpful! Do not miss this church, it held me spellbound.

Absolutely beautiful church. We like to visit churches in the towns that we travel through and this is one of the most wonderful ones. A fabulous church in a small but inviting town.

Very nice baroque interiors hidden by the not so special exterior. The altar and frescoes are really nice. Together with the nicely kept cemetery just next to the church worth for a visit once in Oberammeragau.

This church was easy to access and there was no crowd. As a result, we were able to get inside and view it easily. There was no cost and there is a scenic graveyard on the grounds. I recommend visiting when in the area.

A typical Bavarian church with many paintings adorning walls and ceilings. A short walk from the centre of the village.
