Parish Church and Courtyard

Niederwaldkirchen, Oberösterreich, Österreich

The Gothic Parish Church comprising an outstanding
Baroque Court are the most characteristic features of Niederwaldkirchen.

Around 1400 Hans Krumauer remodeled the church in Gothic style. He also built the church´s chancel of Passau Cathedral. At the same time the Blasiuskapelle funeral chapel was added. In the interior of this beautiful church can be found its most precious possession, a Baroque style high altar. In the course of the years Niederwaldkirchen became a place of worship of the Virgin Mary.

Between 1715 and 1735 the outstanding Baroque courtyard was constructed. The architect and builder is unknown but in fact similar elements can be found in St. Florien and the in ancient parish courtyard of Ansfelden.
