Mühldorf located on the serene river Inn.
It has seen its share of violent history. The town is over one thousand years old and was reigned for hundreds of years by Salzburg.
My first visit was for business and because of good memories, I dragged Elizabeth in this part of Upper Bavaria.
She was not disappointed and enjoyed the architecture similar to that in Wasserburg. Countless hours were spent window shopping with her. Roaming down covered alley ways where we found
many unique boutiques. When our feet got sore, we parked our buts around of the many fountains and Elizabeth occasional through a couple of "Pfennige" and made a wish that even today is her secret. Much time was spent at the market place which fortunately was in the full swing on the day that we were there. Very impressive was the old town hall. This is a must to see - not only because of the wood paneled conference room with the ceiling and entrance door all in Italian Renaissance style. We learned also about the "witch chamber".

There is too much to mention, the so called "witch chamber", an old kitchen complete with open fire place and more and more.
More about the witch chamber: it was used until 1750 to imprison women accused of witchcraft. The last being a 16 year old damsel which finally was decapitated and burned at the stake in Salzburg. You see we were not better than the Talibans! I was told that the remaining structure is still in the original condition.

Naturally, we visited also the "Nikolauskirche". This church is very old. It dates back to the early 14th. century.
Please reserve sufficient time for your visit of Mühldorf if you are interested to learn more about the violent history of this town.
The battle shown below took place in 1322 in the Northeast from Mühldorf. It was the last one in Germany without the use of firearms.

I hope that you believe me that you cannot learn hundreds of years of history, sightseeing, shopping enjoying good food and some time to relax in one day.
Alone to visit some of the spectacular churches and places of worship will take hours.
If the doors are unlocked don't be timid and go in.
You don't have necessarily have to attend the service but if you are among the fortunate and on e is in progress, the music that you will hear will bring sometimes tears to your eyes even if you don't understand it.
To take photos are often not permitted within the sanctuary.
Postcards or slides can usually be purchased if you want to remember this attraction.
