“current church built in 1731”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2011

In 1688 the Chapel arose, 1731 a new building (master mason Johann Martin Pöllner), 1745 inauguration of this Schutzengelkirche. Rather rectangular interior: frescoes (Innocentius Waräthi), choral fresco: the nine angelic choirs worship the heart of Jesus, in the nave: Holy three kings with Jesus child (the painter has himself immortalized as a shepherd next to an ox). First half of the 18th century altar decoration (Benedikt Gößler), decorative figures of high altar: St Joris, Maximilian, Theresia and Florian (JG Lindt and JG Kapfer (Angels figurines). On 2nd floor Mary chapel with 16th-18th century paintings: a mantle Madonna, and from the 1688 Chapel original devotional "Maria Trost" a 1685 copy according Philippe de Champaigne (it was very popular in the ancient chapel). Church was completely renovated in 1989.
