Travel Tips for Ettal

The swedish column

by Diana75

Going from the west gate towards the church entrance, we have passed a stone column.
The so-called Swedish Column is a reminder of the Swedish invasion that took place in 1632 during the Thirty Years' War.

It is said that at that moment in time one of the brothers was persecuted and killed for his beliefs by the enemy soldiers.

Kloster Ettal (3)

by Cristian_Uluru

The abbey was dissolved in 1803 during the secularization of church property in Bavaria. The site was acquired in 1809 by Josef von Elbing. During the 19th century were made some small building works: the renovation of the facade and the twin bell towers.
In 1900 the abbey was given to the Benedictines of Scheyern Abbey, who re-founded the monastery. Today the abbey has got a community of more than 50 monks.

Kloster Ettal: the courtyard

by Cristian_Uluru

The courtyard of the abbey is fantastic!!! Along it there are the buildings of the secondary school specialising in the humanities and modern languages. Ettal also runs a brewery and distillery, a bookshop and a hotel. The courtyard is the best place if you want to relax!!!

The interior

by Cristian_Uluru

The Baroque interior is fantastic. All the walls are covered with plasters, angels, statues and decorations. Very beautiful are the six side altars with statues of saints served as Johann Georg Ublher and Franz Xaver Schmuzer.

The Dome's Fresco

by Cristian_Uluru

The fresco of the dome has been realized by Johann Jakob Zeiller between 1748 and 1750. The fresco shows the adoration of the Trinity made by St. Benedict and of its followers with 430 figures painting.
