Westerndorf (Bayern): St. Johann Baptist und Heilig Kreuz

Typically for Bavaria are the many onion domes on baroque church towers.
Here Bavaria's biggest onion dome, covering the whole church: St. John Baptist and Holy Cross, 1668-71 by Georg Zwerger in Westerndorf near Rosenheim.

Haimhausen (Bayern): Schloss

Haimhausen Castle, near Dachau (yes, the famous "KZ-Town") was built 1740-50 for the bavarian minister Count Sigmund von Viepeckh, also a scientist and intellectual.
He was a founding member of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences (1753) and encouraged the foundation of the famous Nymphenburg Porcellain factory.

Architect: Francois Cuvilliés

Here the garden front

the main room of the castle, the banquet room

The castle's chapel in the left sidewing

Looking backwards in the chapel

Two decorative details, typical for the elegant manner of Francois Cuvilliés, the symbols of secular and ecclasiastical power.

http://www.kirchenundkapellen.de/kirchen/haimhausen-schloss-reliefbischof.jpg

The centre of the ceiling fresco, the Last Judgement with the burning earth, by Johann Bergmüller, a famous Augsburg painter.
The unusual motive reminds me of the near KZ.

Dachau (Bavaria): Schloss Dachau and KZ Dachau

One side of the Dachau (and german) history: the terrible concentration camp, here US troops before the "representative" entrance for officials.


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/4f/KZDachau1945.jpg

and the entrance for the prisoners with its famous inscription: "Labour makes free".


http://www.cityscouter.de/images/muenchen/tor-von-dachau.jpg
Ca. 25000 human beeings died behind this gate during the 12 Nazi years.

The other side of Dachau (and german) history.
Dachau is a friendly old bavarian town with a fine Wittelsbach castle, of which only one wing is still existing, the other three had been demolished in the early 19th century.
Here the main church of Dachau, St. Jakob


http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Dachauscrapbook/2001Photos/DachauE016.jpg

The castle was built 1546-77 in Renaissance style, 1715 redesigned by Joseph Effner in a baroque manner, here Effner's facade of the only existing wing.


http://www.mein-klagenfurt.at/uploads/pics/Dachau-castle.jpg

The renaissance hall of the Castle with a wooden, coffered ceiling, very typical for the german renaissance, 1564-66 by Hans Wisreuther.

Da es ja reichlich blöd ist, unter Deutschen Englisch zu reden, antworte ich mal auf Deutsch: Es gibt noch etliche andere solcher Kassettendecken, die in unserem Lande erhalten geblieben sind. besonders schön die von Schloss Heiligenberg am Bodensee.
Vielleicht stelle ich das mal in den nächsten Tagen vor, wenn ich mich von meinem Barockdelirium (mein bevorzugter Stil, süchtig danach fast seit meiner Kindheit, die ich in einer düsteren Schwerindustriestadt verlebte) etwas erholt habe

Here the Renaissance hall in Heiligenberg Castle near Lake Constance in black and white.
You can hardly guess the splendour of this ceiling.

Dießen am Ammersee (Bavaria): ehemalige Abteikirche Mariä Himmelfahrt

The work of Johann Georg Bergmüller in the Haimhausen chapel reminds me of a much greater work of this painter, his frescoes in the former abbey church St. Mary's Assumption in Dießen.
The church is a comparatively early masterpiece of an ingeniously gifted german baroque architect, Johann Michael Fischer, perhaps the most important after Balthasar Neumann.
It was built 1732-39. Fischer (1692-1766) was so 40 years old 1732.
This sculpture commemorates the great man in his native city, Burglengenfeld (Upper Palatinate, Bavaria).


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/82/Burglengenfeld-standbild-johann-michael-fischer.jpg/450px-Burglengenfeld-standbild-johann-michael-fischer.jpg

I don't think, that he is smoking a cigaret
It's a piece of charcoal

If the painting is removed, a baroque "theatre stage" appears for various sceneries, here Jesus Christ, risen from the dead.

A detail of the fantastic stuccowork (Johann Michael and Franz Xaver Feichtmayer, you will encounter these names in many baroque churches in southern Germany, for example in Ottobeuren too, plus Franz Xaver Üblhör).
