An outstanding church with serious baroque ornamentation on an earlier frame. Altar and organ, along with various polychrome statues not to be overlooked on a visit to this pleasant town on the Lech.

If you are there, you must visit this beautiful Bavarian church. I would recommend you read about the art in it so you can find the pieces and admire the investment in preservation.
