Ried im Innkreis is a town most tourists will skip, as they mostly do not know , why to go there.
If you love baroque churches - THIS is THE place to go !!!
This church looks rather simple from outside, but it is absolutely great from inside !
All walls and the ceiling are covered with paintings and ornaments on a special pastell-toned ground.
Everything fits and matches to a perfect work of art !
Go there during the day, the church is open for visitors without entrance-fee.

Also the town-square looks interesting with lots of colorful baroque houses.

Ried im Innkreis has it's own train-station (www.oebb.at) and is situated 8 Km off the highway A1 Passau-Linz (40 Km west of Linz)
