This is the largest Benedictine monastery in Germany; approximately 55 monks live here. We then make our way to Oberammergau. Its location alone, in an Alpine valley beneath a sentinel-like peak, makes this small town a major attraction. Its main streets are lined with painted houses and in summer the village bursts with colour. Many of these lovely houses are occupied by families whose men are highly skilled in the art of wood carving, a craft that has flourished here since the early 12th century.
