One must travel via Bischofreut, if not a three hours walk lies ahead. Since May 2010 an unpaved road was constructed espacially for the annual 3-year festivities. Then a small parking, an about 80 meters on foot. When we visited woodworks were going on, so our road was more difficult. For such a remote spot reasonable visited due to the myth of the disappeared village Leopoldsreut. The small church is located on an open area surrounded by tall pines, 1110 metres above sea level. St. Johannes Nepomuk was the highest located Church in Diocese of Passau and was a branch of parish church of Grainet. It was built in 1785 and restored in 1911. In the Interior one can see a collection of old photographs from the local history (and then talk about our snowlevel again!). The large wooden cross was carved from the oak beams of the houses demolished in Leopoldsreut, by Herrgottschnitzer Fritz Schuster (Herrgottschnitzer: traditional name for a professional woodcarver who primarily works on Christian religious motifs). The original cross from 1650, the so-called Leopoldreuter Herrgott, is kept in the parish church of Bischofsreut.
