Haidmühle is a municipality in the district of Freyung-Grafenau in Bavaria in Germany.


Geographical Location[edit]

The community lies in the Donau-Wald at the Cold Vltava in the Bavarian Forest, on the border in the Czech Republic. Haidmühle is located 25 km from Freyung, 24 km from Waldkirchen, and 20 km from the border with Austria.

A few meters away from the village is the border crossing Nové Údolí Neuthal to Stožec Tusset, which is open to pedestrians and cyclists.

Here ends right at the border crossing on the Czech side, the former railway line Passau-Prachatice, which is now frequented by local trains to Volary-Wallern.

Part of the route is a museum train Pošumavská jižní dráha in operation.

Constituent Communities[edit]

The municipality consists of the following districts:

There are the following districts: Bischofsreut, Philippsreut, Frauenberg.


The village in the former Bishopric of Passau was secularized in 1803 with the majority of the Bishopric and the territory in favor of Ferdinand of Tuscany and fell until 1805 with the peace treaties of Brno and Bratislava to Bayern. In the course of administrative reform in Bavaria originated with the municipality edict of 1818, the church today.

In the spring of 1933, when the community dedicated a Ritter-von-Leeb House, Wilhelm Ritter von Leeb was among the guests of honor.[2] In June 1940, locals crammed into the Niederl Inn to watch with intense curiosity the movie Eine Nacht im Mai.[3]

Since 1946 belonged to the former glassworks settlement Schwarzthal the municipality Bischofsreut who came to Haidmühle 1978.

On April 27, 1951, the church name was officially changed in Frauenberg Haidmühle.
