St.Johann Nepomuk Church ("Asam Church“) is the former private church of the famous artists-brothers Cosmas Damian Asam and Egid Qurin Asam. Built from 1733 to 1746, it ranks among the finest Rococo style churches in the world. The interior is ornamented with a splendid fresco painting on the life of St.Nepomuk. Beside the church the home of E.Q.Asam. His house is connected to the chapel by a corridor and he could see the high altar from his bedroom window

  4. 4. In 1729-30, sculptor and stuccoist Egid Qurin Asam bought two properties here, which he converted into a family home for himself. Soon after, he acquired a plot of land next to his house, where in 1733 he began to built a church dedicated to the newly canonized S. John Nepomuk, a 14th-century Bohemian monk who drowned in the Danube. The church was completed in 1746

  6. 6. Saint John of Nepomuk (1345 – 1393) confessor of the queen of Bohemia, refused to divulge the secrets of the confessional. At the behest of King Wenceslaus of Bohemia he was thrown from the Charles Bridge in Prague and drowned. John of Nepomuk is patron saint of bridges
  7. 7. S. Johann Nepomuk church, better known as the Asam Church (Asamkirche) was built by the brothers Asam as their private church
  8. 8. A heart shaped memorial placate, surrounded by angel statues, on the upper part of the Asamkirche facade, with a text in Latin, stating: “Fides Spes Charitas In Ioanne Unitas” or “Faith Hope Charity in Holy Unity”
