Stadtpfarrkirche Mariä Himmelfahrt

Church in Landsberg am Lech

This huge 15th-century church with its slender bell tower was built by Matthäus von Ensingen, architect of Bern Cathedral. The barrel nave is stuccoed to baroque perfection, while a cast of saints populates columns and alcoves above the pews. Gothic-era stained glass casts rainbow hues on the church's most valuable work of art, the 15th-century Madonna with Child by local sculptor Lorenz Luidl.
