Private house of brothers Asam - creators and owners of St Nepomuk Church. House has shared wall with church, and both facing the street.
Baroque Catolic Church of St Johann Nepomuk, better known as the Asam Church, was built from 1733 to 1746 by the brothers Egid Quirin Asam and Cosmas Damian Asam as their private church. It is framed by the Asamhaus (Asam House) on the left and the Priest's House on the right. Overdecorated, church was built after brother's Asam wishes. Due to resistance of the citizens, the brothers were forced to make the church accessible to the public.
