“Very pretty interior”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

When going to Oberammergau, this church is worth visiting besides the beautiful painted houses. The ornate Rococco interior is very beautiful to look at, but if you have visited the Wieskirsche or Ettal Monastery, then the interior of this church has a similar style, well at least to my untrained eye. If you have visited those 2 places, then this church may be skipped if you are lacking time while visiting Oberammergau, but still worth visiting regardless.

“Fabulous Interior”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

When in Oberammergau ensure you walk through the town, and after admiring the painted houses, get to the Church. The exterior is nothing special but the interior is magnificient with a number of wonderful paintings on the ceiling and no shortage of baroque ornamentation..

“Had no idea - truly a hidden gem”
Reviewed 28 November 2013 via mobile

This was a beautiful church. The frescos were breath taking. We were left in awe of the beauty between the paintings and the wood carving details to the gold detail. Magnificent!

“Old Bavarian Chuch - Beautiful!”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

Oberammergau was my favorite city of our trip. They were all beautiful, but Oberammrgau was the most beaufitul. The church is unbelievable. The inside is so ornate, which paitings on the ceiling and a gilded alter. It's absolutely breathtaking.

“Go for the cemetery”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

The dome of the Oberammergau church has been featured in representations of this town ever since the church was built. The exterior is beautiful. What we most valued about our visit to the church was the opportunty to walk through the cemetery to see the local styles of creating headstones of carved wood and to search for the graves of famous passion players.
