Roding is a town that’s got enough for a large family to keep busy and never run into each other. But, as family vacations go, you’ll want to experience it all together.
But, if you’re going to come to Roding you might as well know where it’s at. The seventeen quarters of Roding are located close to the Czech border in the federal state of Bavaria; meaning the place is located in one of the most beautiful places the in the world.
Roding is also a religious town. On the first Sunday following January 18th, Roding has the Sabastiani Procession that follows along Schulstraße and Falkensteiner Straße to the Chapel of St. Sebastian; the patron saint of the town.
You will find a richly decorated Rococo style Pilgrimage Church from the 1730’s, where many of the faithful come to see the marble font known for its miraculous healing. St. Anna’s Chapel might not have any known miracles associated with it, but it is one of the oldest places of worship in all of Roding; built in 1560 and decorated with Romanesque and Gothic artwork.
I won’t leave out the Monastery Strahlfeld or the St. Pankriatus Church, either. Nor, the Old City Hall — built way back in 1634. Roding also has a World War II memorial for the countless victims of a death march through town on their way to the Dachau Camp.
With your intellectual and artistic vacation needs met, it’s time for the physical. There’s a lot more to do than just wandering (OK, hiking, biking, or walking) around the Nature Park of the Upper Bavarian Forest. The forest makes a great place to camp out for the night or swim in Neubäuer See.
You can also join in a game of football (soccer), tennis, or swim in either the indoor or outdoor pool (with waterslide). Or, enjoy any number of events over at Haus Ostmark, Roding’s Cultural Center.
The town of Roding is a wonderful family friendly place with lots to do and experience together.
