Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is quite possibly the most ornate church I have ever seen. I was unable to contain my amazement when walking inside, it was so beautiful. I also had to remind myself it is an actual church, and people were there praying.

Similar to other reviews… this church is unassuming from the outside but once inside it will knock your socks off.

This church is very beautiful and tastefully, richly decorated. on the outside seems unassuming but bursts with rococo decor inside. Old cemetery nearby is also of interest reflecting the life of the village of Oberammergau.

This gem is unassuming on the outside, but beautiful and well-maintained in the inside. The cemetery has many interesting monuments. The door was open and we just walked in. Don’t miss it if you’re in the area.

Well worth visiting the church. Beautiful wood cravings and architecture. At 9pm each night shows a light show, very inspiring and spiritual.

Enjoyed visiting the Church while in town for the Passion Play. The cemetery is really interesting and full of history. The Church was nice and we enjoyed being outside for a quick rest and a chance to eat a snack before the play.

What a beautiful church, with the most beautiful church cemetery. Right in the middle of Oberammergau, with the church tower providing the beautiful insta backdro[

Be sure to walk all the way in and observe that the main altar doesn't have the usual crucifix, but rather an image of the scourged Christ. The details in this church are amazing, from the gilded statues to the amazing architecture and beautiful murals on the ceilings.

Beautiful, ornate catholic church where the pledge was made and the Passion Play was first performed in the cemetery, reputedly on a stage which they erected over the fresh graves of the Plague victims! The church and graveyard are well worth a visit.
