The abbey church
A splendid testimony of faith
In around 1740 the abbey church acquired its present interior, in the light-filled, colourful style that was typical of the Late Baroque era in the southern German region. Decorating the ceiling are frescoes by Matthäus Günther from Augsburg depicting St Augustine and the Virgin Mary, the patron saint of the church. The stucco-work, which includes numerous rose-coloured angels, is by Anton Gigl from Wessobrunn. The building itself, on the other hand, dates back to the Middle Ages. Its massive Romanesque bell tower and the three-aisled nave were built in around 1200, while the high Late Gothic choir is from around 1470/80.
