Holzkirchen is an amazing destination for anyone with an exploring bend of mind.
Whether you live out of a backpack or just stepped out of a chartered flight this town has what it takes to give you an education.
If you’re acquainted at all with its history, the Market Place would be first on your list of venues to visit and rightly so. You’ll be greeted with the medieval Maypole with its figurines. And that’s just the beginning, for here’s where you’ll find remnants of history embedded in half-timbered buildings and art deco steeples.
In Holzkirchen it is but natural that you scan the place for those famed wooden churches that the town is named after. You won’t be disappointed for you can’t help but notice the tall towers of the St. Lawrence Catholic Church standing tall against the blue skies. And yes, it is every bit as exciting as they’ve told you it would be.
There are more of these medieval beauties along Steindlweg and Kleinhartpenning.
Holzkirchen has this picturesque old Town Hall which now does duty as the Town Library. Now, whether you are a book lover or not, the beauty of the renovated structure is indeed a huge draw for camera-toting visitors.
This is also where you get to taste the typical Bavarian food that will have you coming back for more. The old Alte Post is a family owned eatery famed for its local cuisine and it would certainly be worth your while to check it out.
Holzkirchen’s attractions also include the charming landscape that affords plenty of outdoor activities as well as rest and relaxation. The Erlkam Lake area is perfect with its stunning views and clean, fresh air. The Hackensee is another must do if you need more of the same.
Hire a bike or take a walk trying to spot church steeples in the distance or merely admiring the velvety green grass lining the trail and urging you on.
