Historic village centre and buildings

Parish church of St. Michael in Röhrnbach

The catholic parish church of St. Michael in Röhrnbach in the district of Freyung-Grafenau, Bavarian Forest was erected from 1746 to 1750. The parish church was originally designed in the baroque style with many ceiling paintings and colourful ornaments on pillars and columns, but these were plastered over during one of the many renovations. Later on it was reconstructed thanks to a great deal of encouragement from the State Office for the Preservation of Ancient Monuments. The plans originated from a native of Passau by the name of Johann Michael Schneitmann. Since its construction the interior of the parish church of St. Michael in Röhrnbach in the Bavarian Forest has been redesigned again and again, so that the original spatial concept can be only interpreted.
