Get a close look at the impressive Late Baroque architecture and intricate detailing of Asamkirche. The tiny church was constructed as a private chapel in the mid-18th century. It features a beautiful main sanctuary of floor-to-ceiling frescoes and ornate Baroque decor. Note the magnificent wax statue of St. Johann Nepomuk in the pillar-enclosed high altar. Look up to see "Life of Saint Neopmuk," the ceiling fresco by Cosmas Daminan Asam. Next door to the church, you can stop by the Asam House to see its South German rococo stucco exterior and ornamentation. The Asam brothers acquired it in 1733.

  • This small church is a highlight of the excuberant Bayerische roccoco style. Beautiful decorated. When you want to visit only one church, take this one.

  • Place that made with the soul, absolutely magnificient work of art. Beautiful inside and outside, historically and spiritually significant sight.
  • 15 min is enough to see all the painting and drawings and other things. It has under ground sitting area. Best to go when you are near by.
