UNESCO sites in southern Germany

Wieskirche,  UNESCO Wold Heritage Site
In days gone by, mighty conquerors and wandering monks had a shared habit of bringing something with them, and usually leaving something behind as well. Evidence of this long tradition can be found in the South Germany UNESCO World Heritage sites, which include magnificent sacred buildings such as the Pilgrimage Church of Wies, Bamberg imperial cathedral, Maulbronn's remarkable monastery, and the Monastic Island of Reichenau. Würzburg Residenz palace is another fine historic attraction, while the Roman Limes border wall brings visitors closer to the rich history of the Roman empire.
