The world-famous “pilgrimage” church in Wies, near Steingaden, was formed as part of a collaboration between two brilliant artist brothers, architect Dominikus and painter and stucco plasterer Johann Baptist Zimmermann. The Bavarian Rococo style reached perfection in the Pilgrimage Church of Wies (1746-57). Quite rightly, this unique creation of holy architecture has made it onto the UNESCO World Heritage list. Enjoy the congenial synergy between architecture, colour and penetrating light.
Wallfahrt-Museum Wies is open between 3 pm and 5 pm every month.
Regular services, pilgrimages, tours and concert series are held at Wies Church
e.g. the “Festlicher Sommer in der Wies” summer festival: www.fsw-konzerte.de
or the “Musik im Pfaffenwinkel” concert: www.musikimpfaffenwinkel.de ).
