Soon the existing church became too small; one converts it several times. Again because of state of decay it was established to 1751-56 by the building master and minister Franz de Paula Penz after plans of Josef Stapf (feet). Before the Basilika lies a larger place, which lets the beautiful baroque front particularly become effective. The inside the Basilika is mixed an intoxication tender ester colors, with festive gold and delicate Rococo stucco, which Franz Xaver Feichtmayr and Anton Gigl actually put as Gespinst over those strict architecture. M. Guenther from Augsburg created the splendourful cover paintings, which show scenes from the life Mariens. The plastic decoration originates from Josef Stapf from feet, likewise the statues on the pulpit. Splendour-fully also the high altar with the four columns. They surround the structure of altar, which is considered by a giant crown. Among them in the strahlenkranz the grace picture, one about 90 cm high nut/mother God statue with child from sandstone, in the style hochgotisch, from the first half 14. Jhd.
