Nußdorf am Inn Things to Do
Parish Church St. Vitus
The original church in late Gothic style dates back to the second half of the 15th century. Around 1720-30 the church got a Baroque interior and in 1923 it was extended by the annex of the western ante-hall.
On the ceiling you see scenes of the life of St. Vitus like his healing of Diocletian’s son. On our visit the main painting of the main altar was covered by a cloth. It shows the martyr of St. Vitus. The statues of the main altar are Pope Silvester and Soldier George by the Rosenheimer sculptor Andreas Dietrich from around 1735.Related to:

St. Leonhard pilgrimage church
This church is much older than the St. Vitus as already in 788 there was an “ecclesia Nuzdorf” mentioned. Today’s church dates back to various centuries but the first bit is from the 12th century. Once upon a time this church was the most important between Tyrol and east of Wasserburg in Bavaria. When the small church of Kirchwald, a hermitage in the forest was built, St. Leonhard was slowly forgotten.Related to:

Nußdorf am Inn Restaurants
The Café Peter is located on the main street coming from the north. Across the street you will find a big car park. We visited it on 31.12.2008 in the afternoon and therefore the choice of cakes wasn't that wide anymore.
The café is bigger than you may think when you first enter because there are more tables in the ante-room. Service was very friendly. You can pay at the counter when you leave.
Apart from cakes they also sell self-made chocolates and in summer the café is very popular for its various ice creams.
Favorite Dish: I had a black tea with lemon (Euro 1.90) and a piece of Frankfurter Kranz cake (Euro 2.30) which was excellent.
Nußdorf am Inn Local Customs
Welcoming the New Year
When we visited Nussdorf we saw two groups of musicians going from door to door playing some music to the landlord. They then got some money or something to drink and moved to the next one.
Ice skating on the local pond
In winter when the local pond on the main road freezes over, then the local kids will abduct it for their purposes. They even manage to play ice hockey on it.
