Tradition and Churches

The south east of Bavaria has a long tradition of religious live and culture. In the 15th century many churches where raised in this area. The churches are used in different ways. Some of them are churches of pilgrimage, some had local character as religious meeting point and even as cathedral in Passau. You will also find a church that was build in 19th century (Herz Jesu in Ludwigsthal).

Religion and Art

The catholic church was always a sponsor of art in the churches. So you can find impressive art works in the churches. The Asam Brothers worked here in the 16th century. The Herz Jesu Church in Ludwigsthal was decorated in an early “Jugendstil” Style.
