The vast expanse between the Rott and Inn – also known as the Bavarian Tuscany – is old farmland that was once a centre of horse breeding. The festive highlights of the horse culture remain, such as the horse pilgrimages to Aigen am Inn and Grongörgen.
In the officially recognised health resort, Kirchham located directly adjacent to Bad Füssing with its famous thermal and mineral springs, you can collect your energy, achieve a sense of well-being, and find healing.

Yet, the vast landscape represents pure idyll and relaxation. True to the original style, it can be explored, for example, on the Way of St. James, on horseback, by bike, or on foot. Fantastic nature and Bavarian hospitality welcome you to explore far over 400 km of the best-accessible cycling paths and hiking trails available. Further sport opportunities are offered by the “Generationenpark Unterer Inn” (recreational park). A special tip includes the European Nature Reserve Unterer Inn, habitat to around 140 types of birds that are in part quite rare, 800 different types of butterflies, and one of the largest population of wild beavers in Central Europe. The Inn being a powerful torrent is now a part of the past – the beauty of its landscapes as well as its rare animal and plant life still remain.

In addition to the Museum, “Alte Mühle” (“Old mill”) in Kirchham, the Church Museum in Kößlarn is also worth seeing. It documents the rich history of pilgrimage between the Rott and the Inn and is, at the same time, a guidepost leading to special art treasures and to the Gothic parish and pilgrimage church “Most Holy Trinity” (“Heiligste Dreifaltigkeit”) in Kößlarn, the magnificent baroque church St. Martin in Kirchham, or to the Asbach monastery with the Cuvilliés church and exhibitions that are indeed worth seeing.
Down the river, cultural treasures continue to be available such as the Neuhaus castle, Vornbach castle and the Neuburg castle towering high over the Inn that is the cultural and event centre and headquarters of the Rural District Gallery (“Landkreisgalerie”). The “Drehscheibe Pocking” presents over 2,000 years of old art with interesting findings deriving from the Celts, Romans, and Bajuwares. In nearby Tettenweis, a celebrity was born: Franz von Stuck, the Munich “Artist Prince” at the turn of the century, co-founder of the Munich Secession and painter of “The Sin”.
