“Exceptional Basilica, placed in a beautiful town”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

First of all, St. Blasien is a beautiful town. You should start your walk there through the wonderful garden underused with a well decorated housed. From there go to this marvelous Basilica all in white with great acoustics. Right in front of the Basilica there is a great restaurant located in the Dom-Hotel you won't regret it.

“A place of unbroken peacefulness”
Reviewed 9 August 2012

Out of nowhere the dome of St Blasien rises into the sky as you drive around lake Schulchsee rises this huge dome that dominates the village.
Inside the notices are clear but unobtrusive instructing you to retain the silent peacefulness of the building. Looking up one sees a ceiling fresco that beautifully illustrates the passing from this life to the next.
Around the edge of the circular worship area are various altars to various saints - striking is St Nicklaus's altar - this saint is obviously important in the black forest as the parish church in Schulchsee is also dedicated to him.
There is a quiet chapel at the entrance for private prayers and devotions and many candles burnt as a witness to the number who find themselves drawn close to God in this place.

“Basilika”
Reviewed 1 August 2012

What would you least expect in the wooded landscape of the black forrest is a huge basilica with an enormous Dome. As a childhood memory it was dark, black and hidden behind the woods. When I came back now, 50 plus years later, I found it amidst a wonderful sundrenched valley next to a small stream with sparkling clear water and the inside was airy and light. Perfect to visit any time of the year
