along the Bavarian Romantic Road was Rottenbuch Abbey, founded as an Augustinian monastery in 1073, the Abbey church was constructed between 1085 and 1125 in the Romanesque style. The elegant and simple exterior didn’t prepare us for the extraordinary high baroque style interior which was created in the 18th century and is a glorious example of fine stucco work. It may have seen several... More

From the outside this church is very unassuming and plain but step inside and there is the most ornate baroque church I have ever seen. We were lucky to be on a small guided tour with Pure Bavaria and our driver Gunnar gave us a wonderful insight to the history of the town and the importance of this church. Would... More

This was a great stop on romantic road and what a treat it was. Beautiful small village with church and cemetery. The inside of the church is like an iced cake. Well worth stopping off to see

The beautiful church is the only attraction in this little town. I think it shold not have made it to the Romantic Route. I mean, it is a wonderful barroque church, if you are into churches DO stop here, if not, cross this stop from your trip.

Approaching the church from the outside, one would not expect the spectacular jewel hidden inside. As I told my travel companions, "this is where baroque exploded!" This church is truly a "must see" towards the end of the romantic road of Bavaria.

OK so here is the bottom line. Great frescoes in this Bavarian Rococo style church. The typical tour is not likely to stop here. So, arrange a private tour to include this church or drive yourself. As is typical, the church is a bit unassuming from the outside but is awe inspiring from the inside. It is beautifully situated in... More

Unlike the nearby Weiskirche, this baroque gem in the lovely little village of Rottenbuch has NO crowds and can be enjoyed at your leisure. Not so overwhelming as the Weiskirche, but grand nevertheless. There are places to eat nearby, and the surrounding woodland trails make for an enjoyable afternoon's walk. Highly recommended for a low-key day's out.

The church in the former Abbey of Rottenbuch, Bavaria, is a short distance from Hoehnschwangau and about an hour from Munich. It is one of the most admired and splendid examples of the Rococo in Germany. Located easily in the middle of the small town of Rottenbuch, on the Romantische Strasse (Romantic Highway) of Bavaria, it is well worth a... More

This Church is one of the most Beautifull in the whole area,is never full of tourists and can be visited as an alternative to the Wieskirche should that be full of busses etc.US GI´s slept here for a few days at the end of WW2 so offers a bit more interest to Americans than most Churches with crosses and gold...
