The Marienmünster in Dießen

A600_0366_w minster (Münster in German) is a kind of catholic church and the German name Maria is Mary. Minster means, the church belongs to a monastery or was once part of a monastery. Now it is a parish church.

So, the church was donated to Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, while it was part of a Augustinian monastery.

The church is located on a hill above the city of Dießen. Thus you can see it over a long distance. I’ll show some more photos from inside the church in my next post. When already knowing catholic churches (i.e. some in France or in Italy), you’ll be a bit surprised, when seeing the inside of this one, and also some other Bavarian churches.
