Wies Church

 

Almost a duty is an excursion to the Wieskirche, rococo jewel and UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.

One of the most famous Rococo churches in the world is the pilgrimage church "To the Scourged Savior" on the meadow in Steingaden. The figure of the suffering Christ, the scourged Savior, is the center of the Church.

On June 14, 1738, Maria Lory, the farmer, discovered tears in the eyes of a figure depicting the suffering Jesus at the Pissal Column. This tear event was the starting time for the pilgrimage "To the Scourged Savior" in the district of Wies near Steingaden. From 1745 to 1754 Dominikus Zimmermann created a unique Gotteshaus.

The church is decorated with rococo in the highest perfection. Visitors from all over the world come to the pilgrimage church every year, including numerous pilgrims. True pilgrims leave the car in Steingaden and walk the shady hiking trail in about an hour on foot.

Visitors can look, marvel, pray, and be invited to attend a worship service or concert in the summer. Many, however, come to know God in quiet restraint in the Scourged Savior.
