Lovely church very much in the tradition of southern German Catholicism. Airy and bright, very ornate in places, it's worth a moment to poke your head in and look around.

A small church located in Fussen, you can not miss its colorful exterior. Step inside and notice the very old collection box as well as the old vintage holy water container. There is a sign on the side of the church explaining the church's history.
