There's a great restaurant right next to the church with fantastic Bavarian food

Pilgrimage Church of Wies
In the southeast of Germany, this church became a pilgrimage site after tears were apparently seen coming from a statue of Christ in the mid 1700s.

It’s in a beautiful location in the Bavarian countryside but the most stunning part is inside. The whole church is painted and decorated to highlight the suffering and salvation in the tears of the statue.

The closest main city to the church is Fussen, to which you can get to by train. From there, take the number 73 bus for about an hour and it’ll drop you right at the church.

There’s no admission charge and the church is open during the day every day. However, you can’t walk around or take photos if there is a service going on.

There are parking, toilets, shops and restaurants on site. Photography is allowed.
