Parish Church of St. Nicholas
Pfronten's parish church is consecrated to the saint bishop Nicholas. A first church was probably already built around 1100 in Pfronten-Berg. The present Baroque church dates from 1687 - 1692. In 1696, the consecration of the church took place. The special landmark of the Pfronten parish church, the 61 m high tower, was built according to a design of the Pfronten artist Peter Heel and was completed in 1749.
The history of smithy in Pfronten reaches far back into the 16th century. But the Hammerschmiede in the Kurpark was built only in 1928, after the old building had fallen victim to a flood. It was in operation until 1958. A renovation took place in 1985.
