Chapel „Maria Heimsuchung“

High and holy – Germany’s highest church

Nowhere else in the Federal Republic are you as close to heaven as in the Chapel „Maria Heimsuchung“. Located close to the Zugspitze glacier at almost 3,000 metres above sea level, it has been defying wind and weather since its consecration in 1981 by the emeritus Pope Benedict  XVI. This little house of God is a place of peace and reflection for all winter sports enthusiasts, glacier fans, sun worshippers and, of course, religious believers. Surrounded by the imposing mountain scenery, visitors will be filled with respect and reverence for its Creator.
