Church Penisula – Maria Wörth

Maria Wörth became property of Freising between 875 and 883. Its first documentation was in 894 and it was made to the collegiate church by Bishop Otto of Freising in 1146. During this time the second church of Maria Wörth, the so called winter or Rosary church, was sanctified. In 1279 a charnel house was built right next to the church. Even though some architectural changes were made from time to time, the charnel house as well as the two churches provide an excellent insight in the Romanesque architecture of that time. The collegiate church has a crypt, while the winter church offers beautiful cycles of frescoes from the 12th century. In the 20th century the south bank of the Lake Wörther evolved into a popular international tourism site.
