You’ll find Reisbach and its seven districts in Lower Bavaria, just 13km from both Dingolfing and Landau an der Isar. It’s a simple life here in Reisbach, surrounded by hiking trails and bike paths.
And it’s a simple life for sure in the village of Bachham, which has only 58 residents. Isn’t that nice, to know all your neighbors?
Oh wait, maybe not so good if you’re up to no good. Wink. Wink. ;-)
When you’ve got sightseeing on the brain (instead of hanky-panky or something like that) you’ll want to see the St. Michael Church, whose oldest section dates to either the 14th or 15th century. Don’t look at me like that… if they don’t know, how could I possibly?
I do know the date when the pilgrimage church of St. Salvator was built, that was 1400. And the little chapel on Jägerstraße holds only 16 people. That’s pretty cool — better come early though, or you ain’t gettin’ a seat.
The oldest of Reisbach’s churches is the Chapel of St. Wolfindis, which dates to the 7th century. Yes, that technically makes this chapel like 1400 years old.
For more modern day conveniences and fun, the Bayern Park amusement park (in the village of Thannenmais) couldn’t fit the bill any better. Not only are there all sorts of musical concerts and events, but it’s got a super cool roller coaster (love ’em!). The park’s open from 9am – 6pm (or 5pm), mid-April to early-October, so you’ve got ample time to enjoy it.
Flinging yourself around on a coaster isn’t your idea of a good time? That’s all right… you can pursue a less hectic speed on one of Reibach’s hiking trails or bicycle trails (the Isar Cycle Route and the Danube Bike Path come to mind).
Ohhh, a cruise on the Danube sounds lovely. So does a morning out on the 18-hole golf course, if you’re interested.
The only thing left to do is enjoy the Waldfest in August; where you’re pretty much guaranteed to meet one of Bachham’s six dozen residents — and make lifelong friends.
