This town square has a large lawn and is surrounded by Catholic churches, religious shops and restaurants. It is very nice and usually quite peaceful to sit there and read or have a snack.

With Grace Chapel as its focal point, the square has wonderful buildings surrounding it. They are low lying so that the sun is alway present. Filled with shops and cafes. You could spend hours here.

Didn't realize this was such a pilgrimage destination until we started walking around the area after our late night arrival. Lovely area, many religious sites to see. Lots of shops selling souvenirs and religious items, as well as many cafes and restaurants.

This is a typical square of a typical Bavarian town. But it is really well-kept and surrounded beautiful buildings. There are many cafes and restaurants that you can enjoy some drinks or sweets or meals. There is a big grass area on the square.

This plate is surrounded by churches and lovely old buildings. It contains the most significant Marian pilgrimage site, tiny church in Germany. Many attractions for believers and tourists but frequented most by Germans. Cheap parking right under the platz.

City of pilgrimage, also called "the German Lourdes". A lot of churches and chapels on one square, different architectural styles from different eras. Most prominent building is the The Chapel of Grace in Altötting (where the hearts of many Bavarian kings are kept). Other builings...More
