This was an amazing pit stop. Just as interesting was the cemetery and the beautiful stonework. But inside the church was something else. Amazing paintings and woodwork. This is a church that still offers services so you do need to mind what time you go.

We received a tour of the church and tasted the wine. The church is breathtaking. Beautiful pictures of the Savior adorn the walls. I did not taste the wine but the people in our group enjoyed the tasting.

If you are in Oberammergau it is worth a visit but not worth a detour. Ettal church is the one to not miss.

From the outside the church looks very plain but inside it is very impressive, with amazing paintings on the ceiling, very ornate alter and side alters. If you don't make a visit, you will be missing out!

Highly decorated church in Obergammergau obviously a lot of thought went into this amount of detailing. Beautifully maintained and detailed so much detail hard to take it all in.

Beautiful outside, and gorgeous inside. It was built in the early 1700's. The grounds around the church are interesting and well cared for with gorgeous flowers. Worth the trip!
