History[edit]

In 1802, the Catholic Maximilian I Joseph of Bavaria and his Protestant wife Caroline of Baden decreed that people from the Electoral Palatinate may settle down in some places at the Old Bavarian Donaumoos. One of these places was the new municipality of Großkarolinenfeld.[4] In 1882, the first Protestant church in Altbayern war erected here.[4]
