Oberammergau Church, Oberammergau

This Rococo church, consecrated in 1749, was designed by well-regarded German architect Joseph Schmuzer. Admire the grandeur of the interior and its ample use of marble and gold. Murals depicting The Lord's Prayer and Ave Maria, the two central prayers in Catholicism, are particularly striking. Look for the representations of St. Peter and St. Paul (the church patrons) in the nave, parapets, and the high altar. It's worth taking a short walk through the well-maintained cemetery, which has many interesting headstones.

  • A surprise to enter this church, seemingly anonymous and, find yourself in front of a beautiful altar with frescoes with shades of pink and other soft pastel colors. In this country where every 10 years the Passion of Christ is represented the Church of Saints Peter and Paul is a fine example of Baroque style brought to Germany by the Benedictine Friars.

  • The church on Kirchplatz in Oberammergau is an important place to visit. In addition to many carvings, we have also admired painting. Everything has a very harmonious effect. But it is best to come to the divine service and experience it in this great church.
