The Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary in Prien am Chiemsee

The Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary in Prien am Chiemsee (Pfarrkirche Mariä Himmelfahrt) is one of the main historical attractions of this Bavarian resort town. Inside it you will find magnificent baroque frescoes of the Bavarian-Austrian school. The inner gorgeousness is somewhat surprising if consider the decent size and simplicity of the temple’s exterior finish. The height of the tower with a narrow spire is 72 meters. It can be seen from anywhere in Prien and it is the best guiding landmark for strayed tourists. 

The church was built by renowned masters from Salzburg and Munich. It was rebuilt in 1734-1738. The project leader was Johann Baptist Zimmermann who is, by the way, the author of the luxurious Bavarian frescoes on the church ceiling. They depict Pope Pius V and the famous Battle of Lepanto.
