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:
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:

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 …..
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.
Two decades since I was there, but I still remember it. That and Vierzehn Heiligen, also in Bavaria
A very beautiful church indeed, Sue! The scans turned out quite well.
Well, the scans are so-so, Peter!
Nice find. 🙂 🙂 The scanning in has given it a lovely dreamy look, Sue. Almost at Z 🙂
X, Y and Z all thought of
It was, and better still that we saw it on a beautiful late afternoon
Know this well, have visited a few times, very near to where we stay in Landsberg. As you say, wonderful flamboyant Baroque Rococo interior 🙂
Got any good photographs??
Yes tons, but I haven’t posted them yet, will do, but not sure when, we nearly went back this trip, but went to Lake Constance instead 🙂
Ah, the good old Bodensee!
Yes, but there was an awful lot of pollen in the air from the apple tress etc, made the sky yellow and floated on the water, very odd to see.
Doesn’t sound too good!
We even had it in the Landsberg, the cars were covered in a fine yellow dust, but I can’t find anything about it on google. Maybe they just had a good crop of flowers and the wind picked up and what with the really hot weekend, we got the yellow peril 🙂
I must admit I have never so many fruit trees, and we get a lot in the Fens.
