“Impressive”

Pfarrkirche Maria Immaculata
Reviewed 23 November 2011

1125-1150, Former Benedictine monastery church. The three-aisled basilica with two towers is largely originally Romanesque and since its inauguration in 1140 almost unchanged. 14th and 15th century the flat ceilings, except in the choir yoke, were replaced by stars- and rib Vaults. 1602, Sacristy, 1609 renovation: new altars and a Odeon. 1621 music Odeon (probably Gallery or oratorio), 1670 the towers got a bell-shaped roof. 1685 Baroque conversion, of which some parts in 1885-1887 were removed. The Interior contains the oldest figurine gravestone of Bavaria: Bertha of Biburg († 1151), mother of the founders of the monastery. The painting of the previous main altar, Virgin and mother of God, then estimated at 100 guilden, hangs on the Western Wall. Portal: sculptures under a blessening Christ depict the 7 sins: the shooter: arrogance, birds with grapes: envy, Mermaid: lust, two dogs: merriment, figure, with the three animal carcasses with human head: gluttony, man sticking out his tongue: anger, mans figure strolling: slowness.
