A world famous rococo church jewel!
the Wies Church continues as a pilgrimage church, a place of prayer and worship, and is simultaneously a magical drawing point for millions of visitors. Out of the miracle of June 14, 1738, when tears were seen on the face of the Scourged Saviour, there rapidly developed a pilgrimage of unexpected proportions.
Today more than one milion people from all over the world come to the church.The Wieskirche is considered one of the most beautiful rococo churches in southern Germany.
In 1983 the Wieskirche was taken up in the list of the world heritage.
