Map
 
 
This is one of the most impressive houses of worship in the region. A church was first erected here in the 13th century but, due to its dilapidated state, was rebuilt in Rococo style in the 1750’s with majestic twin towers and a buttery yellow façade. The interior features extravagant rococo plasterwork by Franz Xaver Feichtmayr and Anton Gigl along with ceiling murals, by Matthaus Gunther, depicting scenes from the life of the Virgin Mary. The beautiful sandstone statue of the Virgin Mary on the high altar has been the subject of pilgrimage since the Middle Ages.
