Passau: Churches and Gingerbread

  1. Gorgeous absolutely. It seem that parishes are rich. Our churches in Finland are very different.

    Here is one example of a wooden Church on countryside:

    Church of Haukipudas

    Outside there is big poorman-statue. They are unique in the World. Inside beautiful Votive-ship and incredible amount on walls.

    Happy and safe travels.

    1. The churches in Germany that we saw were all in excellent repair, especially compared with those in, for example, France. We learned that the big reason for this is that Catholic and Lutheran churches in Germany are tax-supported. Citizens can opt out of paying that tax, but then they’re not allowed to use their churches for weddings or baptisms.
