The world’s Most Beautiful Churches: St Bartholomew’s, Lake Königssee

Our Forefathers Gave Us These – What Do We Give Our Children?

A pilgrimage church in Bavaria, Germany, St Bartholomew’s is only accessible by boat or via a long hike. A building has been on this site since 1134, but the onion domes and red roof were added during a rebuilding in the Baroque style in the 1600s. A pilgrimage ending at the church is held annually on the first Saturday after August 24.
