W is for Wieskirche

One year we travelled along the German Romantic road in Bavaria, and having done my research, we stopped off at the little church at the hamlet of Wies, the Wieskirche. It was a late September afternoon, and it was a delightful scene. Alas, I don’t have time or energy to search for the negatives, so have scanned these images in, not very successfully. But you get the idea:

Wieskirche closer

Inside, you get the shock of your life- from the remote rural surroundings to fabulously over the top  flamboyant Baroque Rococo….. Sadly, I only took one image as I was using a basic point and shoot, which couldn’t cope in the dark:

  1. Timeless countryside, and a very impressive interior too.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      Timeless countryside indeed, Pete. I wish I had been able to get an image of the whole interior, it was just jaw-dropping …..

  2. I remember entering this beauty, in the summer of 1975, marveling at its colourful, decorated interior. Forever in my memory as the feeling of entering the Garden of Eden. I was only 18. How great to see it again.

  3. A very beautiful church indeed, Sue! The scans turned out quite well.

  4. Nice find. 🙂 🙂 The scanning in has given it a lovely dreamy look, Sue. Almost at Z 🙂

  5. Know this well, have visited a few times, very near to where we stay in Landsberg. As you say, wonderful flamboyant Baroque Rococo interior 🙂

Over to you...
