Foundations of the Wöhrd Church

Grundmauern der Wöhrdkirche

According to local legend, blood, wax and oil rained on this spot. There is also a version that says that a blood red stream sprang from this spot, where the church is today. These stories had such a strong influence on the people of Kelheim that they built a church here in 1368. Unfortunately, due to its location directly next to the Danube, the church suffered greatly over the years. After the Secularization, the church was used as a storage house until its demolition in 1864. In 1990, the foundation of the church was unearthed and restored to its present position.
