"OTTOBEUREN" Ottobeuren by balhannah

Ottobeuren Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 84 photos

Our reason for coming to Ottobeuren, was to see the famous Abbey and Basilica.

The Benedictine abbey was founded in 764, and is one of Germany’s most famous abbeys, and is still in use today with a group of monks who live in it.

    Another place with a beautiful ceiling painting! I?ve just been writing a tip on the ceiling of the Toulon Opera House (to be posted next week) and discovered that the artist painted it on a big piece of canvas, 15 meters in diameter, which was later mounted on the ceiling. That explains why most of the detailed figures are around the edges.

      That's interesting! I really love the ceilings in Germany. Thanks for continuing the journey!
