Saint Vitus' Church

Taufkirchen an der Trattnach, Oberösterreich, Österreich

The affiliated church at Hehenberg is a superb example of Gothic architecture and is dedicated to Saint Vitus.

When Emperor Joseph II decreed a new organization of the parishes he demanded the demolition of this Church. Fortunately the building was saved by the Leidinger Farmer of Luemergut Estate at Hehenberg. He purchased the Church and later donated it to the Parish.

The choirs are adorned by lavish vaults. The side altar is flanked by a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The place was and still is visited by large numbers of people who are attracted to it by the fame of this elaborate statue.

Complete restoration works were carried out in the year 1978.
