As the German name Pfarrkirchen already indicates many places of interest will be related to Christianity in this case Catholic churches.
We learned that the little church shown on the right was built in the 16, century for all those who were suffering from the plague and in honor of St. Alexius and Lazarus. (thanks to the town of Pfarrkirchen)
Neither me nor Elizabeth are Catholics and it was not our intention to go on a pilgrimage and to visit all the churches. We also do not watch continuously sports events.
For that reason we were also not interested to go to the sulky racing course which is the oldest one in all of Bavaria.
We wanted to get an impression of the well know town on the river Rott. We began as usual with a sightseeing tour by car and learned that the downtown area as well as the surroundings are very attractive and that people who want to walk or hike will be very please to explore all that by foot.
We were on our way to Bad Birnbach to see friends and did not have the time to do this. We knew that we will be treaded the with all kind of home cooked food, coffee and other drinks. So we decided to come back another time and spend at least a whole day in Pfarrkirchen and in the beautiful nature around this town of almost 12,000. This never happened because we moved back to Canada. During a break in there my computer with the few own pictures of this visit was stolen - so many thanks to everybody who helped me.

The medieval town hall - many thanks to "Mattes" and Wikipedia
After our driving tour we stopped in downtown at the "Stadtplatz" (see picture below) for a little walk. We needed that after a relatively long drive. We were really stiff.
We were lucky to find there the old and the new town hall as well as the monument of the "Wimmer-Roß".
The old town hall which you can see also in the background of the picture below was built around 1500 and the brand new one on the left side of the horse in 1865.
Elizabeth was again surprised how clean everything was. Certain parts in Munich were many immigrants lived looked different. Now I am a immigrant in Canada but I follow the Canadian laws and became even a Canadian and consider Canada to be my home.
Now I can criticize certain things her and nobody can tell me any longer - "Go home if you do not like it!"
Nobody should stop learning.
