Rococo then spread throughout other countries, principally Germany and Austria, where the style was combined with the German Baroque modes to create a style of incredible lavishness and profusion. Architects often draped their interiors in clouds of fluffy white stucco. Among the finest German examples of Rococo architecture is the church designed by Balthasar Neumann at Vierzehnheiligen in Bavaria.
