Tann is a municipality in the district of Rottal-Inn in Bavaria, Germany. It has about 4 thousand inhabitants and is only 15 km from the corner of Austria away. The historic marketplace is one of the most beautiful in the whole region.

The first time Tann is mentioned in an historical document, was in the year 927 in context with the bishop of Salzburg Adalbert. In 1389 Tann has grown up to a so-called 'marketplace' and got the right to hold markets. From the year 1300 to 1900 the most important business sector were the weaving mills. In old bills from the traders, are named destinations for their drapery like Trieste, Genoa, Venice and Amsterdam.

The most impressive building is the church St. Peter and Paul. At the end of the 17th century, began a pilgrimage to the "Godfather of Tann" which is the name of a wooden cross. The saga tells, that the beard and hair of the crucifix began to grow for several times. After that many miracles happened caused by the cross.
