“Beautiful town to visit”

Oberer Stadtplatz, Silberzeile
Reviewed 21 September 2017

Brightly coloured buildings are in a abundance in the centre of this small town. Loved the curved gable tops and different shaped buildings. Cafes were busy when we visited with both locals and tourists. The local park (Schlosspark) is close to the centre and worth a visit as good views overlooking the river. St George’s Church which is also nearby is quite plain looking externally but beautiful inside with several stunning paintings and marble columns. Worth a visit especially on a hot day when it is cool inside.

The village obviously takes pride in its inner city. The houses in both the upper and lower city are in good repair and sport bright and probably coordinated colors. The city center is worth a small detour and free parking was surprisingly easy to find.

You are stunned by the colours and during the pre christmas time you can see beautiful lightings on the houses.

This town has a stunning central plaza, with a beautiful water fountain. Although no longer adhering to the custom, houses were painted certain colors to represent the occupation or business there, so even if you could not read, you could tell where the local tailor or butcher shop was. Now, the wide array of colors is eye candy for the tourist. The old castle accessed via an impressive gatehouse has little left of the structures, but the moats and the walls are still there and you can tell that it was a really imposing fortification.

Schärding has put a lot of work into renovating many of its historic houses and the result is lovely.
