On the way back to Garmisch from Munich, we stopped to see Landsberg am Lech – a picturesque city on the Lech River – just west of Munich.
This is a statue and fountain dedicated to the Virgin Mary – and sits prominently in Landsberg am Lech’s main city square.
I love the Old World medieval tower gates of European cities, and this one had a nice character all it’s own.
Nicely squeezed in and supported by the neighboring buildings overlooking the city square – this tower is a real feature for Landsberg am Lech.
This view of a central area of Landsberg am Lech shows the front side entrance to the “Maria Himmelfahrt Kirche” or “Assumption Landsberg” – clearly visible on the Google Map satellite view.
This is the “Maria Himmelfahrt Kirche” or “Assumption Landsberg” Church from the front – the beautiful bell tower is offset near the middle of the long sanctuary.
As far as I can tell, this tower is the same one as the previous tower I showed – only this photo is taken from the tower’s opposite side.
David stands on a long staircase leading up to the “Hl. Kreuz Landsberg” or “Holy Cross Landsberg – Daughter Church of the Assumption.”
David and I stand at the magestic entrance doors to the “Hl. Kreuz Landsberg” church – as David proudly makes what looks like drooping rabbit ears above my head.
This is a close-in view of the High Altar of the “Hl. Kreuz Landsberg” – which has a wonderfully ornate and detailed interior.
This is a more distant view of the High Altar of the “Hl. Kreuz Landsberg” – an amazing work of the hands of man – for the Glory of God.
This is a view of the church’s beautiful double balcony – with an amazing pipe organ near the church’s ceiling – as if in a cloud.
A sectional painting of the sanctuary’s ceiling – painted with a beautiful portrayal of Heaven in the “Hl. Kreuz Landsberg.”
I can’t identify this church – but though a little smaller – I still love all of these beautiful Bavarian churches with their onion dome bell towers.
The rear of this beautiful church has a wondrous Crucifix – with the Virgin Mary weeping at the foot of Jesus’ Cross.
I cropped this photo of the Crucifix with the Virgin Mary weeping at the foot of Jesus’ Cross – in order give the setting the reverence it deserves.
This appears to be a view looking east from the Karolinebrücke towards the Old City central district area.
This is another statue and fountain monument dedicated to the Virgin Mary – but I can’t locate where in Landsberg am Lech I saw it.
This is a classic section of the inside of an old city wall that at one time surrounded the city – while open to the inside of the city – the outside is a fortified solid wall with small defensive windows.
