Georg Kirchmeir, vicar at the Wies Church in Steingaden, Bavaria, said he awoke Saturday night to two gun barrels pointing at his face, The Local.de reported Monday.
"It was awful as I realized that it was all real," Kirchmeir told the Bild newspaper.
The 73-year-old vicar said two masked men demanded his wallet, access to a safe and the PIN to his credit card as a third man waited outside.
"I shouted for help," Kirchmeir said. "Then they started threatening me, shouted 'Quiet,' 'Shut up.'"
The robbers chained the vicar and a 51-year-old church employee to a radiator and drove to an ATM to withdraw cash using the stolen credit card.
Police have surveillance footage of the three men at the ATM and have opened an investigation, The Local.de reported.
The Wies Church was built in 1754 and served as a pilgrimage site. It was named a World Heritage Site in 1983.
