The Stations of the Cross with life-size sculptures by Peter Wagner, erected from 1767 to 1778, are worth the hike all by itself. The stairs leading to the church are lined by plane trees and the stations are all pieces of art.

The church boasts magnificent frescos and stucco works as well as a miracle hall with votive donations. Ascending the 352 steps to the church is rewarded with a fantastic view of the Fortress Marienberg, the city and the Main River valley down below.
