In 1695 the seriously ill tower watchman and bandmaster Ferdinand Sertl placed a small wax figure of the Christ child into the hollow of a firtree. Several times a week he returned to theplace to pray. After he was cured of epilepsy, theplace attracted so many pilgrims that it becamenecessary to build a church. It was given thename ”To the Christ child below the heavens”.The construction of the church was begun byGiovanni Battista Carlone in 1702. It was finishedby Jakob Prandtauer between 1708 and 1725.The miracle-working figure is only a 10 cm tallstanding wax figure of the Christ child holdinga cross and a crown of thorns in its hands and isnow housed in a little reliquary on the high altarabove the globe-shaped tabernacle.
