As we were touring the Bavarian country side our drive guide made a stop at Rottenbuch to see Stiftkirche. From the outside the building has a clean modernistic yet traditional appearance. Most notable is how well the church, cemetery and the surrounding area appear to...More

Approaching the church from the outside, one would not expect the spectacular jewel hidden inside. As I told my travel companions, "this is where baroque exploded!" This church is truly a "must see" towards the end of the romantic road of Bavaria.
