Ruhpolding Travel Tip:
St. George's Parish Church
St. George's Parish Church, Ruhpolding
Construction of this hilltop church began in 1738, though it would not be consecrated by Bishop Franz Truchsess of Chiemsee until 1754. Gunezrhainer, the court’s master architect, kept the exterior façade simple. Yet everyone is certain to be touched by the harmony which radiates from the interior of this house of worship, by the monumental power of the high altar and by the artistic beauty of the carved saintly figures. The crowning glory of the shimmering golden Rococo interior of St. George is undoubtedly on the left side of the chancel, a feature unmatched anywhere else in Bavaria. The golden case of the right-hand side altar houses the church’s most significant sculpture, the Romanesque Madonna from the 12th century. Its creator and origins are unknown. Church Services: Saturday 7pm, Sunday 8:30 and 10:30am.
