Rinchnach - Frauenbrünnl (St. Gunther Kirche)

The "Frauenbrünnl" in Rinchnach is also called "Gunterkircherl", because in the idyllic place in the Rinchnach Highforest, where this little gem was built in 1766, the founder of St. Gunther was supposed to have been a recluse.

The small church has its name from the mother of Jesus and the small well, which flows directly from the rock next to the building. Since the extensive renovations of 1997-2000 and 2009, the jewel shines again. Even overpainted Ceilingfrescos were released and retouched. In a shrine is a gold-colored Gunther figure and the unique 15th Stations of the Cross from the Glass Cross in the partner community in Hartmanitz with the motive for the resurrection of Jesus Christ. A small church leader informs about the construction and the decoration of the gem, which is largely derived from the period of construction. There are numerous benches at the church forecourt. There is a left-hand entrance to the church (through a gateway). On Sundays and holidays the church is open in the afternoon. From the Gehmannsberg-Kohlau road (where you can park) you can reach the gem in just a few minutes walk (past ancient cross stations of granite). The local circular walks Nos. 2 and 4 also pass by, as does the historic "Guntherlane" long-distance trail, which runs from Lalling via Rinchnach across the Bavarian Forest to Modrava in the Czech Republic.
