Kirchberg ob der Donau, Oberösterreich, Österreich
Three landscapes at a glance... Here you can gaze into the distance and discover the beautiful Danube valley, the Sauwald forest opposite and the Mühlviertel. The Mühlviertel adjoins the Donauleitn to the north and conveys a certain tranquillity with its gently shaped ridges and hilltops. Granite and gneiss form the geological subsoil, which appear here and there as striking rock formations and weathered shapes. The acidic and nutrient-poor soils did not make it easy for agriculture, in addition to the harsh, cool and low-precipitation climate of the high altitudes. Typical of the region are hilly cultivated landscapes (Bühel), which contain various copses. In contrast, there are agrarian plateaus with little structure. Today, agriculture is very intensive, with dairy farming as the main sector. In the past, the cultivation of flax and hops as well as linen weaving were important sources of income alongside agriculture. The beer brewing tradition is still alive today.

The devil once had riches and precious treasures. He buried his greatest treasure very close by, in Obermühl on the Teufelskirche. "The Devil's Money Laundering" tells the story of what else he used to do with his treasures.
