I've seen some beautiful places in my lifetime, but NONE like this. Everything from the architecture, to the beautification of the land - superb. I would advise anyone who appreciates European history, art, and architecture to visit Benediktinerabtei Ettal
Impressive dome can be seen from afar, the inside of the church is typical baroque and the surrounding buildings, grounds lovely and well maintained. Although I visited on a Sunday it was peaceful and a good place to have a little time out ( or rest if like me you have just hiked down from the summit of Laber)
Stop and smell the alpine air as you visit this beautiful site. There is the abbey and the rest of the monastery. There are restaurants right outside. There was a wedding while we were there with ladies wearing their dirndls.
Beautiful interior, impressive buildings, nice stop along the way. So much detail in the church (including the plaster work, painting, and woodwork) it was a bit overwhelming. Take your time to take it in! Regal facade and cute town. There is free parking out front, and if that is full a paid lot right next door.
This was worth the stop, it's a very pretty church and the liquor brewed here is awesome:) The interior is typical of Baroque churches, but I never get tired of them. Also, Blessed Rupert Mayer was interned here in 1940 when the Nazis were in power, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer also spent time here, so that was kind of neat historical... 更多
This is a quick stop but one that is well worth it! The church is beautiful and the grounds are very lovely as well, and have benches all over to sit. It was a great place for our toddler to stretch his legs. The gift shop on site has a great selection of the liqueurs and beers brewed on site... 更多
very old cleric premises. Outside inner circle is just done up. Very interesting church with relics from the past on show. you can easy spend 2 hours there plus the good sorted connected shop with offers from monks brew , spirits and wine. as wll as brochures and candles and nice selected presents.
an extraordinary interior, a little over the top but so well preserved and decorated. Take the time just to drop in if you are in the area.
Nice to see, but not worth a trip on its own. Stop if you are going by. It would be better if you went at a time they had some thing going on, like Mass. Our timing was off, and it was a rainy day, which didn't help.
