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:

or the “Musik im Pfaffenwinkel” concert: ).
