Wiblingen Abbey, Ulm: 3 reviews and 14 photos
The abbey church was designed in late baroque style by the architect Johann Georg Specht in 1771. Then the monastery hired the painter Januarius Zick to do the frescoes and altar pieces in 1778. Zick, who dedicated himself not to the baroque but then most modern classicist style, managed to have the architect fired and be in charge of the whole interior design. He created one of the earliest classicist church interiors, a fine example of this change in style in the late 18th century.
