  Birnau Basilika

The Birnau Basilica - a cistercensian monastery church, dedicated to St. Mary - is located along the B31 road between Nußdorf and Uhldingen. It was built between 1746 and 1749 in the baroque style, with stunning ceiling frescoes and sculptural art. Its location on a hill overlooking the Bodensee is magnificent. Viewed from the Bodensee, the church is a landmark and easily visible even miles away, due to its elevated position and the absence of other buildings in the vicinity.
