Albert Frey,Musical Director of the Catholic Churches in Füssen plays the organ in the Church.

The organ in this church was built by Andreas Jäger . It was to be one of the last works he undertook. He died before it was completed and its thought that the organ was completed by Joseph Anton Weyrather from the Tirol.


The casing was built by  Joseph Anton Obermiller.


 


Older members of the congregation in Füssenremember when the "Via Claudia" was not such a wide road and that on the other side of the road were many houses and a Hospital for lepers.

Many people who walk past or drive past in the car wonder why there is the shape of a door which has been filled in in the centre of the Church but at least 2 metres above the road.
This was used by the lepers to cross over a bridge to the church.The bridge ,Hospital and Houses were bull-dosed in 1968 to make way for a bigger road to the border with Austria.

THE CHURCH IS USED A FEW TIMES EACH YEAR FOR THE CELEBRATION OF HOLY MASS
