In response to Mr Lucas Nugia's comment Good morning sir, sorry for your feelings during your visit to the cemetery. It would have been wise to specify in your comment that you came at night, wearing gloves with a flashlight. The cemetery being closed at this time, it was quite normal for me to wonder when you came. You can come back during opening hours, we will be delighted to welcome you. Best regards The conservative

Place of great beauty and tranquility. The cemetery is very well maintained. We were welcomed by the curator who gave us lots of information with great kindness. Thank you to the staff for maintaining this cemetery so well by paying tribute to all those who died.

I go to this cemetery regularly. To walk, disconnect and enjoy the tranquility. Recently there is a curator. If the idea is good to inform or accompany families or visitors, I would have appreciated that he did not speak to me with suspicion and avoid projecting his a priori and perception on my visit. The place is beautiful. Well maintained. Pleasant. But the disastrous reception. I refuse to go back.

There is the shock of the immensity of this cemetery. Nearly 19,000 graves .... And also the serenity of this perfectly maintained place. A very beautiful place of peace but it is a peace arrived too late for all those there ..

Wieskirche

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.
