Birnau abbey church

Uhldingen-Mühlhofen, Germany

Chorus of angels above the vineyards

Nestling among the picturesque vineyards high above the lake rises the slender pinky-white tower of the magnificent baroque church of Birnau. Walking through the gates of this place of worship, visitors are transported to a different world filled with baroque opulence and religious devotion. The sparkling ornamentation and figures of angels sculpted by Joseph Anton Feuchtmayer and the bold ceiling painting by the artist Gottfried Bernhard Göz lend the church - built in 1750 and dedicated to the Virgin Mary - a festive splendour, and it is not for nothing that Birnau is considered the most beautiful baroque church in the region.
