    Reit im Winkl is derived from roden = reuten or arable and means that a settlement has emerged in a mountain corner after clearing.

    Built in the new baroque and art nouveau styles.
    Reit im Winkl, first mentioned in documents in 1160, received in 1393 by the Bishop of Chiemsee, G. v. Neudberg, his first church in place of the small wooden chapel. Rebuilt in 1689 under master builder Hans Hainz, largely destroyed by lightning in 1718, it was inaugurated after the reconstruction of Prince Anton von Berchtesgaden.

    Nice church, even if it is a bit "overloaded" inside.

    According to tradition, Saint Pankratius, patron of this church in Reit im Winkl, was publicly executed at the end of the 3rd / beginning of the 4th century under Emperor Diocletian for his Christian faith. The body of the martyr was buried on the Roman Via Aurelia - in the catacombs later named after him - under today's church "San Pancrazio". His feast day is on May 12th, he is one of the three so-called "ice saints" in popular piety, together with Servatius and Bonifatius (in some areas supplemented by "Cold Sophie" one day later).

    Vicariate since 1524, she became independent in 1805.
    At the beginning of our century, the old church was not only too small but also dilapidated. Pastor Genghammer had it demolished in 1911 and built the current parish church with interior decoration in neo-baroque and art nouveau according to the plans of the Munich architect Josef Elsner.
