Fresco Museum Niedernburg

The fresco museum Niedernburg is a reminder of St. Mary’s Church (Marienkirche – 12th century), which was destroyed by the great fires of the 17th century.

The Romanesque vestibule has been preserved and with its secco paintings it is an impressive testimonial of Christian faith in the High Middle Ages. A screen presentation both in German and English explains the extensive murals in the museum. The delicate secco paintings themselves can be seen behind glass.

The more than 800-year-old wall paintings belong to the most valuable cultural assets of Romanesque art in southern Germany.


Tip: The Fresco Museum is located in the buildings of Niedernburg Monastery. Visit Holy Cross Church and the tomb of Blessed Gisela!
