Church steeples reach into the sky. Light flows in through luxuriously shaped domes. The artists of the Baroque period were skilful in using stucco, the play of light and colours to focus on the divine. In Upper Bavaria, their houses of God also shaped the appearance of the countryside. Where there were once Bavarian churches, abbeys and monasteries, there are now political, economic and, above all, religious centres. Today, centuries after secularization, they are inhabited by only a very few religious or clerical staff members. The cultural heritage, though, has been preserved. Embark on a journey through time, into the Baroque period, and admire the sacral architecture in the Blue Land. Afterwards you can get a taste of the art of brewing, an invention of the monks, in the adjoining monastery beer gardens.
The monks will open their gates to let you become acquainted with their special sanctuary. In the beer garden, you will be able to get a taste of home brewed amber nectar.
It is located in an enchanting valley framed by green mountain ridges. The Baroque building is impressive, especially the frescoed ceiling will transform you into a "Johnny Head-in-the-Air".
