Maria in der Tanne ChurchMaria in der Tanne is a small baroque church in Triberg which was a destination for pilgrims in the 17th Century. 

Legend has in that a young girl was cured from an eye disease by the water from a nearby spring in 1644.  The next year, a man cured his leprosy by washing in the water from the spring.  Shortly thereafter, he placed a small statue of Mary was put in the cavity of a fir tree.

The statue was forgotten, then rediscovered years later by three soldiers drawn to it by beautiful singing.  The present-day church was built in 1705.
