St. Wolfgang Church
The foundation of the St. Wolfgang pilgrimage church dates back to a legend in 976. Bishop Wolfgang von Regensburg lived as a hermit at Falkenstein and decided to build the first church here. He left the place of construction to a divine will through his famous “supplement”. He threw the hatchet with the vow where he found it again to build a church. According to legend, when he found the hatchet after three days, he built the church in its place of discovery on a rocky hill next to the lake.
