“beautiful outside”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

the interior of castle is just ordinary. but the appearance facing main street is gorgeous.

The door is very heavy to pull/push. So don't misunderstand it's closed.

The church is a refined pink eye-catching conspicuously.
The interior is magnificent and is brilliant.
Zimmerman brothers worked decors as the same as those dealt with Wies church of world heritage.
Please try to enter inside.

“Beautiful but not over the top”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

A lovely church. Rococo interior but fairly restrained. Some very fine stucco work. Two beautiful chapels in the crypt. Some modern furnishings that blend very well with older architectural style.

“Lovely sandstone building”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

This was a lovely church to visit, no charge for entry and plenty to see. Lots of paintings some a bit graphic such as the beheading of John the Baptist but very good. Well worth a visit and easy to find as it next to the Cathedral.

“Built over the tomb of St. Kilian”
Reviewed 25 December 2011

Romanesque Basilica, built over the tomb of St. Kilian who, along with his companions, were murdered as missionaries anno 689. St Adalbero founded the Abbey of Neumünster in 1060 and the first canons of St. Stephan made their entry. The newly founded monastery got a two floors Church. 11th century choir, 13th century ornated Tower. 1710-1716 Huge dome and Baroque facade. 1788 Baroque interior (brothers Zimmermann), early stone work by Tilman Riemenschneider and a beautiful sandstone Madonna in a pillar niche of the dome. 1799 West-choir demolished. Secularisation 19th Century and monastery was abrogated, the Church was still used by fraternities. In 1945 bombing continued structually saved, interior burnt out for a major part, yet there are still some excellent individual works from the middle ages and Baroque.
