Shrine of Altötting

In the homeland of Pope Benedict XVI, in upper Bavaria, lies Altötting, the most famous Marian shrine of the German-speaking world, which, as the "Shrine of Europe" belongs to the six most important pilgrimage destinations in Europe. For over 1250 years, Altötting has been the spiritual center of Bavaria; for over 500 years, the image from the 14th century has been venerated there.
