st. ottilien + eresing

we have been to the st. ottilien abbey (erzabtei st. ottilien) four years ago and we did not like it. this time we walked through its backyards and we love st. ottilien now ­čśť. enjoy the strange grafitti, the jewish chapter of its WWII history and mysterious details we have captured in pictures. only the church in the abbey is still soooo cold, ugly und hostile ... but now you know where to stay, don't you?

no matter if dead or alive, forever bavarian ­čśé
how much is your soul? was kostet deine seele?
is it arts or a holy symbol? or just not nice?
