  • Pförring in the Donautal

    The characteristic towers of the parish church,
    the emblem of Pförring, greet visitors already
    from afar. The Romanesque part of today’s
    parish church was built on the highest point of
    the town during the second half of the 12th century.
    Pförring is embedded in the Danube valley
    and surrounded by the “Donauauen” (Danube
    Floodplains) in the south; in the north, one can
    perceive the foothills of the Jura; the Biburg
    (castle) bears witness to the first Roman settlements.

  • Fort

    Fort Pförring, the ancient Celeusum, is about 1 km north of the town.
    The Roman name derives from the nearby “Kelsbach”. A timberearth-
    fort was erected there under the reign of Emperor Trajan
    (117 – 138 A.D.), which was expanded in stone in 141 A.D. The building
    inscription bears witness to this. It has been preserved up to
    this day and can be visited at the market square in Pförring. The
    fort was the location of an equestrian military unit and served to
    secure the Limes as well as the Danube river crossing. The stone
    fort with an area of 3.9 hectares had an almost square ground plan
    (194 x 201 m). It had a couple of corner towers and four gates,
    which were built as double passageways with one tower each on
    either side. One of the gates has been visualized by a walk-on steel
    structure with textile coverings. There is a circular trail around the
    complete fort site.
