Pilgrimage Church in Wies - Bavaria | Germany

Pilgrimage Church in Wies, Bavaria; Germany

The pilgrimage church in Wies is not located in the center of a big city and is not such an obvious place to visit. When you arrive at the site, you’ll even feel like you’re in the middle of a field. However, countless tourists flock to this place every year. The church is a true gem of Bavarian rococo and is associated with a mysterious story.


On 14 June 1738, Maria Lori, a resident of the village of Wies, noticed that the wooden statue of the scourged Christ was shedding blood tears. Soon, the statue became an object of worship and pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and Italy began arriving in Wies. To cope with the influx of visitors, the local convent and nearby residents decided to build a shrine.


In 1983, the pilgrimage church in Wies was inscribed on the UNESCO heritage list. For this reason, Nico didn’t want to pass up a trip to this village. When we arrived at the site, the sky was cloudy. However, when we started looking for a suitable place to take a photo, the weather suddenly changed – almost as if by a wish.

My goal is always to create the best possible and most exciting photos to do justice to the places where they’ve been taken.

Maybe this place evokes some good memory for you?

Or it's a place which you always dreamed to be one day?

I wish a high-quality print of my photo will bring you a feeling of being there at any time!
