The church features the devotional image of the grieving Madonna with the dead Son lying in her lap, the original chapel, which was built by Leonhard, the high altar, which is overlaid with beaten gold and silver, beautiful frescoes on the arches (by Adam Mölk), side altars (by Pußjäger) and other artwork by A. Silber and F. Haider.
To enter the church, take a side staircase, where hundreds of votive signs are stored. Next to the church is the chapel of St. Peregrin Laziosi, patron saint of cancer patients.
In August, 1885, the image of the grieving Madonna, which Leonhard Weissensteiner had kept in the chapel, was crowned again by Giovanni Giacomo della Bona, Bishop of Trient, in a ceremony attended by over 130 priests and 15,000 believers. Today the friars of the Servite Order live in the monastery and take care of a hostel.
In July 1988, Pope John Paul II visited Weissenstein monastery. And he was not the first pope to visit. Pope John Paul I. spent his summer vacation here.
