The municipality of Breitenbach lies on the banks of the Inn opposite Kundl.
In former times the village gained importance through the Inn shipping, which can still be seen in names like "Schopperwirt" (Schopper = master shipbuilder). The coat of arms of the municipality shows the brook that gave the village its name, the Breitenbach, as well as a fish, which is supposed to point out the abundance of fish.
The village is famous for its traditional Perchten run on 5 and 6 December.
The parish church of St. Peter was originally one of the oldest churches in Tyrol, but was replaced by a baroque new building in 1739.
At the main altar there is a beautiful Mariahilf painting. Click on it!
On the left wall we discovered a Nepomuk. I wonder if he will be happy to be included in my Nepomuk collection?
