If you are interested in architecture, this is a hidden gem. Rottenbuch used to have a larger convent, and this was its church.

Amazing Baroque church in the very small town of Rottenbuch. I am baffled by how exceedingly well-maintained they keep it, despite what must be a small congregation! Free entry, easy to find, and we practically had the church to ourselves. Gift shop staff was friendly...More

This was a great stop on romantic road and what a treat it was. Beautiful small village with church and cemetery. The inside of the church is like an iced cake. Well worth stopping off to see

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.

OK so here is the bottom line. Great frescoes in this Bavarian Rococo style church. The typical tour is not likely to stop here. So, arrange a private tour to include this church or drive yourself. As is typical, the church is a bit unassuming...More
