Perhaps though, my favorite part was walking around the town & all of the angles of which you could see of the castle. Not to forget, we passed multiple interesting statues along the way that entertained us. The town is very popular for their artists as you can see by walking past the shops. Scenic sketches were on display in the windows making me wish they were open. If you have time to spare also check out the Laaber Castle Ruins that are only 15 minutes away.
About the Town & Castle
I read that in 1713, the plague hit the nearby town of Regensburg. Thousands of people died in the city and it started rapidly spreading to the neighboring villages. The people living in Kallmünz were afraid and promised to build a chapel to honor St. Sebastian if they were spared from the plague. It passed by Kallmünz without touching them, and in 1762 the church was built.
