Füssen Church St. Mang


Former monastery church from the Middle Ages

Magnusplatz in Füssen’s old town, where the former monastery church of St. Mang stands today, was once the site of the monastery cell of St. Magnus, an Irish missionary from the monastery of St. Gallen. The first church building erected on this site was steadily extended between the 11th and 14th centuries. During the Thirty Years’ War, parts of the church of St. Mang were destroyed. At the beginning of the 18th century, the church was then rebuilt in the Italian Baroque style. Inside the church, the many frescoes with scenes from the life of St. Magnus and the dragon figures, which serve as candelabra and priest seat holders, are particularly worth seeing.
