Katholische Kirche

  • Valwigerberg

Filial Church of St. Mary and Mary Magdalene Valwigerberg. High up on the Valwigerberg, the small pilgrimage church of St. Mary and Mary Magdalene has stood since ancient times.

The "small-big building" has been one of the most visited pilgrimage churches in the region since the Middle Ages due to numerous miracles. The original building, which dates back to the late Romanesque period, was expanded and added to over the centuries with several extensions and furnishings.

Outstanding examples of Gothic art are the figural consoles, the sacrament niche and a wall niche about 3.15 metres long showing Jesus on the Mount of Olives.

 In addition to the numerous figures worth seeing, a larger-than-life Christ embedded in a grotto can be mentioned, which teaches the viewer humility.

Service can be viewed online.
