Ergolding doesn’t have a whole lot of sightseeing to do. But, this is Lower Bavaria and Ergolding has 24 hamlets, so you’re more than likely gonna find something to tickle your fancy.
The town has come a long way from the days when Stone Age man used to call this place home. It’s much more modern than when an old Roman Road came through here and from the days on the old medieval Salt Route.
That said, what’s a person to do around here? Well, a visit to the Parish Church Mariä Heimsuchung is a good idea. The stunning statue of the Madonna from 1510 is worth alone, but there are more gorgeous pieces of art inside.
The Church of St. Peter is another site worth visiting. This is a great example of a Gothic church with lots of Gothic pieces of art, including a painting of Mary with Child that was done in 1460.
Something else to tickle your fancy is food. Don’t be labeled a “foreigner” (meaning non-Bavarian, like me ;-) by not following the proper etiquette on eating Weißwurst. It’s NEVER eaten after 12 noon, always eaten “halved” on a roll or pretzel and dipped in sweet mustard only. If you even attempt to cut and eat the sausage with a fork and knife (like me), locals will know you’re not from around these parts. ;-)
Walking off all those calories by the lake and the forest areas of Ergolding is a good idea. You can always join in on a basketball or hockey game; depending on the season.
Warm weather, cold weather; makes no difference at the Ergomar Ergolding — the town’s indoor swimming complex. It’s ultra modern and also has a sauna.
With this much to keep you busy, why not stay in one of Ergolding’s historic inns. Gasthof Ulrich Meyer has been welcoming visitors for 160 years and the Pension Paula is a small rustic place decorated with colorful flowerboxes.
Take your time to get to know this town; you’ll find something to tickle your fancy.
