Our Lady of the Assumption, Landsberg on Lech, Bavaria in Southern Germany, one of my favourite churches. It is so totally different to churches that are in the surrounding countryside of where I live in the Fens on the Norfolk and Cambridgeshire border in England. But, this is what they would have looked like if our beautiful churches had been left in peace and not pulled to bits by Henry 8th and Oliver Cromwell. This is a Catholic parish church, but most of ours were when they were built, painted walls and highly coloured. Of course this beautiful church has been restored since it was built in 1219, adding to over the years, the Romanesque church was followed by a larger Gothic church. What I like is the Baroque ornamental plasterwork and then there are Rococo alters and plasterwork which were added after 1748. There are wonderful sculptures and stained glass windows, but it is the great feeling of calm that floods through you when you enter the building, it seems to wash over you, the building itself, not what is it. The sheer light that steams in though the windows and the peace, even if it is full of people, there is such quietness. This is really a post of how I feel about this church and how I see it through the lens of a camera. Hope you enjoy the visit of 2016 as much as I did .
The Church is situated more or less the centre of the old town, and it a little difficult to take complete photos as there are buildings close by.
Some of the beautiful stained glass windows to be found inside the Church.
