From the outside it looks like the town of Röhrmoos is just your typical, average town. A place where normal people go to work, and do everyday things.
That’s not entirely wrong; as from the inside, you’ll find Röhrmoos to be a town with a long history and a cultural hot spot.
Many of Röhrmoos’ fourteen districts date back to the Middle Ages, mainly the 8th and 9th centuries. There isn’t anything from this time period at all in Röhrmoos, mostly added throughout the subsequent centuries.
Röhrmoos — Top Areas Of Interest
Take the St. Johannes a. T. Church, for example, that’s a late-Gothic design. So is the St. Martin Church in the village of Biberbach, by the way. It might be hard to tell that the St. Margareth Church was a Gothic church, since it’s now got a bunch of Baroque accents.
The St. Andrew’s Church in Arzbach is a tad different, as that was originally a Romanesque one, but it saw major renovations in 1775. All these churches are still much older than the 19th century Lourdes Chapel, but don’t let its young age keep you from seeing it.
You’d think with all these medieval churches that Röhrmoos would have at least one castle. Sorry to say, it doesn’t, but you will if you really, really need to see one… Head to neighboring Haimhausen to see their castle (the outside only), or to Dachau to see the Dachau Palace.
Since the town of Dachau is so close, you can visit the Dachau Concentration Camp while you’re here; albeit a dark piece of German history.
For something lighter, perhaps enjoying a Symphony Summer Night program? That isn’t even the half of it, Röhrmoos has Opera, Jazz, Folk Music, Cabaret, and even Choir concerts and events taking place throughout the year.
Ohh, can’t leave out the lederhosen wearing Oompah Bands, either.
Yes, Röhrmoos is a place where everyday people do everyday things. They just get to do it in the wonderful Upper Bavarian countryside.
