Coat of arms Wakdsassen


As already said, I haven't been in this region for many years. For that reason I did not know anything about Waldsassen.
Elizabeth and I were real explorers.
Before we stated our exploration we had a late lunch. I used the time when we were waiting for our meals to grab a local paper to get my first information. After having eaten we talked to the waitress.
We learned that most visitor came to see the basilica and the monastery which is just on its side.

The Basilica in Waldsassen

This Basilica was built in the years from 1682 to 1704. It is one of the most splendid baroque churches in Bavaria. The crypt under the Basilica is one of the largest in Germany.
After already having seen so many castles and ruins of castles we decided to visit these attractions. We are both not Catholics and were surprised to learn that it was allowed to perform concerts in the basilica. World known conductors have bee here - for example Leonard Bernstein. We were impressed what Waldsassen had achieved. I never ha expected so much culture in the little town with a population of about 7000.
Watch the video about improvisations of a Christian hymn played on an organ.

The Basilica - many thanks to "straktur" and Wikipedia

Breathtaking - many thanks to "Aconcagua (talk)" and Wikipedia

The so called "Lourdesgrotte" (Lourdes grotto) - many thanks to "Walter J. Pilsak," and Wikipedia

We had our religious day for sightseeing. So we drove to Mitterhof and had a look at the Lourdes Grotto. We were not the only visitors, but we did not pray there - we just looked.
