Wies Church became a pilgrimage site after the figure of the Scourged Savior began to weep tears in 1738. Local authorities converted a hasty chapel into a Rococo church in the late 1740s, hoping to make the supernatural visible. UNESCO recognized the church in 1983 as a World Heritage site. The setting, other attractions nearby, and the surprising size of this rural church make it worth the drive out here.

Wies Church Reviews
Zwiedzając zamek Ludwika Bawarskiego warto zajechać do tego pięknego kościoła znajdującego się na liście UNESCO.

A beautiful 18-century Rococo pilgramage church. I'm not religious (too skeptical me) but I love churches and cathedrals for their peace. And maybe i'm searching for a faith I've never felt, I don't k... more »
A lovely UNESCO site that we visited in February. The drive was delightful. The church is in our top 5 best churches so far. Not normally on the top of the Bavarian list, but this should be a added. We were so glad we went for a day trip.
Wonderful church which was built to accommodate the huge number of visitors that make the journey here to be near the famous statue of Christ! Look at the very modest size of the original chapel of less than 10 square meters size! The large chapel in the meadow now can seat hundreds of worshipers and draws thousands of visitors each year! The beauty and scale of the Pilgrimage Church of Wies brings a perspective to a person of how mighty God and Christ are while having such compassion for anyone who stands in the presence of such glory!
