Gothic frescoes from the 15th century

The parish church „St. Georg“in Friesen is a very successful symbiosis of new and old constructions.  The new building from 1971/72 has consciously not been created in a plain way. At this time, old gothic frescos were discovered in the tower of the old parish church. In long and elaborate work, more than 100sm of mural painting were laid open.

18 pictures show the legend of Saint George as dragon killer and his martyrdom under Emperor Diokletian. Above the quire arch, fragments of a fresco showing scenes of the Last Judgement can also be admired. The quire arch with the artistic depiction of the salvific history is the main element connecting the nave and the tower.

Opening Hours:
The parish church is open for everybody.
Guided tours can be arranged with the parish office.
