Many major tours of Germany go through Bavaria, but most of them don’t stop at Mühldorf am Inn. Those looking for a fresh air vacation with a lot of movement should definitely consider adding this area to their itinerary.
The most striking thing about Mühldorf am Inn is the Old Town. Unlike a lot of different cities around Germany, its Old Town is built in the Inn-Salzach Style of architecture. There are just a handful of cities in Germany that are built using this architectural style that dates back to the 16th and 17th century.
When in the Old Town, make sure to find the two old city doors and walk the 500 meters between them.
The Jagd-Museum or the Hunting Museum is a great place to visit during a rainy afternoon. It’s hard to describe what you will see in this eclectic museum — just be prepared for the absurd.
People stream through this city partly for the nearly constant schedule of festivals, concerts, cabaret and exhibits that take place during the warmer months. Its traditional Volksfest is especially worth a mention, taking place every summer in August since the year 1865.
A great place for a forest walk is in the Mühldorfer Hart. This area is huge and is a protected area that is on the western edge of the city.
A trip to a German city isn’t complete without a trip to a church. The one to see in Mühldorf is the St. Nikolaus Chruch. Built in the 13th century, you can still see the original tower and entrance door. It will amaze you that any building could last so long.
Sport minded visitors are going to want to find a bicycle to loan or rent out and get moving on one of the bicycle tours. Whether you just want to pedal around the city or go from one village to another, this is the area to do it. The most recommended tour starts at St. Laurentius Church and loops back after about 20 kilometers taking you through fields, forests and pastures, so don’t forget your camera.
