Spitz

On the banks of the River Danube at the foot of the Tausendeimerberg (thousand bucket hill, so called because of the amount of wine it was said to produce), nestles the enchanting town of Spitz an der Donau. The river was once important to the town’s economic life, and the Schifffahrtsmuseum tells the story of the Danube navigation. Another famous sight is the Pfarrkirche, the early-Gothic parish church of St Maurice, furnished in late-Gothic style. The church has a presbytery (1508), criss-cross vaulting and elaborate window lacework. The altar painting is by Kremser Schmidt. Lovely wooden statues from around 1380, showing Christ and the apostles, are set in niches along the Gothic gallery. High above the town looms the ruin of Hinterhaus Castle, with its Gothic bulwark and Renaissance fortifications.
