St Jakob parish church - With an extra long index finger

The biggest church in Burghausen is hard to miss – its imposing 79-metre-high tower with double Baroque onion domes can be seen for miles around – like a  finger pointing to the heavens, whose tip is on a level with the castle.

Built in 1140 in Romanesque style, the church now boasts an attractive neo-Gothic interior. Among the most precious testaments to the past are the ornate  gravestones that have adorned the inside and the outer walls of the church for centuries.
