Notes from the newspapers

Parish House at Pfaffnau Church Parish

Read about a church and parish house tour that was part of a celebration of the 200th year anniversary of the buildings in Pfaffnau.

An historian gave a lecture as he took the group through the house that he said had been the summer residence for abbot and monks from St. Urban. “It was kind of like the Castel Gandolfo for the Pope,” he said.

He talked about some of the impresssive oil paintings, a wonderful and unique Kacheloefen (tiled stove found in the main rooms of big old houses), and best of all, a dictionary from 1584 in different languages.

He noted that the building would be considered too big nowadays.

“And sometimes, even in the earlier times, the residents of this town also grumbled, because they had to deliver the wood for heating the house!”
