A little gem in Götzens
The Pilgrimage Church of St. Peter and St. Paul in Götzens dates back to the 18th century and is known as a “little gem” – and not just by the locals who cherish their church as a place of music, wonder and reflection. The pilgrimage church delights with its fantastic acoustics and also impresses with its remarkable architecture. It’s deservedly regarded as one of the most beautiful Rococo churches in the southern part of the German-speaking world. The interior amazes visitors with its Baroque theatre-style architecture and golden rocaille stucco work. The attractive altar was dedicated to Otto Neururer, a priest and martyr, in 1996 – the year of his beatification. The urn containing his ashes is still found inside the altar today.
