Einsiedeln Abbey - kids' first visit
And since the Seilpark/Ropes Course was only 14 minutes from Einsiedeln Abbey, directly on the way home, we stopped there for a few minutes since the kids had never been. We peeked inside to goggle at the extreme ornation. No pictures allowed inside, unfortunately. You'll just have to visit to see the most ornate church I've ever seen (maybe in the world?). If you've seen the inside of Einsiedeln Abbey in person, and you've seen another church interior you find more gaudily ornate, I'd like to hear about it. They have EVERY color on the ceiling - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, peach, gold, silver, brown, gray... really. It looks like there were 43 designers and they all got their way.
Jason pointed out the 3D carvings on the main door. I hadn't noticed the other two times I visited. Neat!
