Fantastic regional museum. Admission is free. Has a variety of exhibits including displays of early and modern history of the area. Also galleries with the work of local artists. Nice cafe, which looks out over the river.

What a pearl Uddevalla has produced here, something of interest for all tastes. I felt I learned so much about the history of this fascinating area covering many hundreds of years,it definitely shows how resilient mankind is & how it can overlive not just 1 disaster but many and come out of it stronger & more prosperous. On top of the exhibition it also has a wonderful small restaurant producing food of all varieties out of the norm, do not miss the total experience of this wonderful museum

A diverse, well displayed and interesting museum centrally located in what is otherwise a non-descript town. It's free to enter and there is plentiful and good value pay and display parking on its doorstep, toilets, a small restaurant and shop. I'd guess about 30% of the information is also in English, but the highly visual nature of many of the exhibitions makes this a good visit for kids, especially on a day the weather isn't all that great.

The Pilgrimage Church of Wies (Wieskirche) is an oval rococo church, designed in the late 1740s by Dominikus Zimmermann. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in the municipality of Steingaden.

The sanctuary of Wies is a pilgrimage church extraordinarily well-preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley, and is a perfect masterpiece of Rococo art and creative genius, as well as an exceptional testimony to a civilization that has disappeared.

The hamlet of Wies, in 1738, is said to have been the setting of a miracle in which tears were seen on a simple wooden figure of Christ mounted on a column that was no longer venerated by the Premonstratensian monks of the Abbey. A wooden chapel constructed in the fields housed the miraculous statue for some time. However, pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and even Italy became so numerous that the Abbot of the Premonstratensians of Steingaden decided to construct a splendid sanctuary.
