Fodor's Review

Across the Loisach River stands the original St. Martin church (also known as "Die Alte Kirche" or the Old Church), whose original foundation was laid in the 11th century. Its current building dates to 1280 and showcases Gothic wall paintings from throughout the centuries, including a 7-meter-high (21-foot-high), larger-than-life-size figure of St. Christopher from 1330 and a Passion of the Christ fresco dating to the 1400s.
