NOTES: It is commonly known as Kappele or Little Chapel; the Pilgrimage Church of the Visitation of St Mary is its formal title. It was built from 1748-1750 by Balthasar Neumann, but the interior was not fully finished until 1821. The interior features ceiling frescos by Matthaus Gunther from 1752 and 1781 and stucco work (1747-1750) by Johann Michael Feuchtmayer the Younger. The side altars date to 1768 and the neoclassical high altar was made in 1799.
