The bell tower of this 13th-century Gothic church, remodeled during the baroque era, is known locally as “Altes Peter” (Old Pete). You get a splendid view from the top, but you have to climb (and climb and climb) 306 steps to see it. The interior of the church contains baroque-era sculptures and some glorious ceiling frescoes by Johann Baptist Zimmermann, the genius behind the Wieskirche pilgrimage church in southern Bavaria. Don’t miss the bizarre relic in the second chapel (on the left): the gem-studded skeleton of St. Mundita, who stares at you with two false eyes in her skull.
