I have to quote Rick Steves' here because his description is perfect. "Germany's greatest Rococo styled church looks as brilliant as the day it floated down from heaven. Overripe with decoration, but bright and bursting with beauty, this church is a divine droplet, a curly, curlicue, the final flowering of the Baroque movement." I'd like to know if Rick came up with that himself or if he has an especially talented writer because this really does capture the romance of this gorgeous church.
We just so happened to be there on Mariahimmelfahrt (Assumption of Mary) during mass so we were delighted with a bit of organ music, but then had to come back later in the day to get photos of the inside.
