Germany: Wieskirche

On 16th August arrived the 14 cards I sent to myself when I recently visited Bavaria.

One of the cards shows the interior and exterior of the Wieskirche in Steingaden. The Wieskirche is a work of Dominikus Zimmermann and was built between 1745 and 1754. It is a masterpiece of the Bavarian Rococo. Since 1983 is the Pilgrimage Church of Wies an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
