St. Michael in Zieglbach

The St. Michael branch church in Zieglbach is in the Dasing community , about twelve kilometers east of Augsburg .

Building history

The church with the former patronage of St. Nicholas used to be its own, but very poor parish. Since it could not last long, it was incorporated into the parish of Wessiszell as a patronage . Today's church is a uniform new building from 1686 and the following years. The builder is not apparent from the available sources.


The nave has three bays , with pilaster strips on the outside and pilasters on the inside , the flat ceiling is sparsely decorated with stucco and frescoes. The retracted two-bay choir with a needle cap barrel has a semicircular end. An articulated roof turret with an onion hood sits on the west gable.

Church interior


Three high baroque altars with three-dimensional ornaments by the Landsberg sculptor Lorenz Luidl date from the time it was built. On the left side altar there is a Virgin with Child Jesus from around 1500/10. The pulpit bears figures of the evangelists (around 1860). The yoke-separating pilasters in the nave are painted in marble, and a rosary Madonna from the beginning of the 16th century hangs on the choir arch . The gallery parapet bears relief figures of the apostles .
