Mauerkirchen Market Town
Welcome to Mauerkirchen!
Mauerkirchen was first mentioned in documents in 1250. In 1276 Duke Stephen the Elder of Bavaria granted the town trading rights and, especially important, the right to hold a weekly market.
After World War II Mauerkirchen attracted new settlers from the East. Today the town has a population of 2300 inhabitants.
Mauerkirchen boasts a charming town square with an old fountain and friendly inns and restaurants. Other worthwhile attractions include the beautiful Emperor Josef II Park, a parish church which was remodeled in neo-gothic style after a big fire in 1865, and Hl. Geistkirche church with its lavish stucco decorations.
In the summer the town’s swimming pools are a great place to relax and have fun.
