  The dome
by MEdelmann

After entering the church have a look above. The church has a giant dome, and the whole church is under it. So everyone's eyes will get to the dome first and then to other details in the church.

It is richly decorated and they were made from two Tyrolians: Johann Jakob Zeller (1708-1783, he came from Reutte, and Martin Knoller (1725-1804).

It looks simply great and lots of windows let much light into the church. So it is possible to take pictures in an easy way, even with just a 100 ASA-film.
