“Special in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2011

It is a modern church, so I never expected to visit this one for quite some time. Its exterior is very modern, its exterior very modest exept its main altar. What a gem!! Make sure to check the back of the altar as well... It is the latest Church in Deggendorf, with detached Tower 44 meters above sea level and mosaic on the East side, inugregated September 1954. The altar, a jewel of Bavarian altar-architecture, is in contrast to the sober Interior and has an eventful history: it once stood in parish church Mariä Himmelfahrt in 1696, in St. John in Schaching and from there it was moved again in August 1954, this time to St. Martin. New and old are organic connected in this altar: itdivides itself into several floors with Gothic reliefs and beautiful chosen figures, its color design is a feast for ones eyes.
