The Church of St. John the Baptist was preserved from the monastery in Steingaden (Kloster Steingaden) of the XII century. It is also called Welf Church (Welfenmünster) named after its founders. Outside is a snow-white church in the Romanesque style. The interior finishing is in the Rococo style of the XVIII century.
The founder of the monastery, Duke Welf VI, is buried at the church. His tomb was destroyed in the XVI century, but the tombstone carved out of sandstone with the emblem of the Welfs survived. Now it is at the Bavarian National Museum (Bayerisches Nationalmuseum) in Munich, because it is considered the oldest of the surviving heraldic symbols in Germany.
