Pfaffenwinkel region of Bavaria is rather compact. It forms almost a square with a diameter of approx. 40 km. Thus, many of these gem churches of the region are in easy reach, less than one hour drive from Hohenfurch. I have visited many churches during my short stay in the region and will write separately about most of them.
The ones in easy reach of Hohenfurch are:
Steingaden with Wies Church and the marvellous former monastery church in the town of Steingaden (22 km to the south),
Rottenbuch, with former monastery (22 km to the southeast),
Schongau town and church Maria Himmelfahrt (5 km to the south),
Hohenpeißenberg with a marvellous view and church Maria Himmelfahrt (20 km to the southeast),
Altenstadt with the Romanesque Basilica St. Michael (6 km to the south),
Sachsenried with the beautiful church St. Martin (12 km to the west),
Wessobrunn with a former monastery (20 km to the northeast).
