Pfarrkirchen is an idyllic village at the foothills of the Alps, only 1 kilometre away from Bad Hall. The countryside and people in this undisturbed landscape provided inspiration for Adalbert Stifter in the coming-of-age story >>Nachsommer (Indian summer) <<. The untouched landscape has been retained to this day.
Pfarrkirchen was first mentioned in official documents before the year 1200 and can look back on a long tradition.
Pfarrkirchen considers itself to be a comfort parish
Pfarrkirchen with its scenic appeal is recommended for people who, above all, are looking for peace, rest and relaxation. Well maintained walking paths allow you to get to know the magnificent scenery better.
Culture walks – the best way of combining culture with the scenic appeal. This small rural community has developed over the past few decades to a place with a high standard of living.
The parish church of St Georg, is one of the most beautiful rococo village churches in Austria: exquisite roof frescoes by the local baroque painter Wolfgang Andreas Heindl. Furthermore: Kalvarienberg church, Chapels >>Kleinadlwang<< and >> Ranshof<< and many small monuments.
Feyregg Castle: for many centuries this was the centre of culture and society and even today its guests have upmarket tastes.
Mühlgrub Castle: offers weekend exhibitions the whole year round in a castle-like atmosphere. (Christmas exhibition, Country Home Style all year round).
