Vierzehnheiligen

“The pilgrimage church occupies a beautiful position over the river Main, opposite the monastery of Banz. . . .

As a teenager, a student with a summer job in Germany [a hundred years ago], I took myself off to Vierzehnheiligen one weekend.

Words just can’t convey what this building is like.

It’s a pilgrimage church in an isolated location and if you’re going to do it, do it properly. Get a train from Bamberg to a little market town called Lichtenfels [the basket-making capital of Germany according to wiki] and walk up the pilgrimage trail through the autumn hills. The first glimpses are magical, Praxiteles would probably say spiritual, and then you reach this amazing building built of a golden yellow stone with it’s mesmerizing interior spaces. Mind blowing

Don’t let this crude sketch put anyone off, it’s a must-do before death.
