Kirchham

lt: Kirchhamas
ru: Кирхгам

782 Kirchham Kirchham is situated at an elevation of 470 m at the streams äußere Laudach and Dürre (Innere) Laudach. The first mentioning in a document (as Chirichheim) dates from 1249.

The parish church Sankt Laurentius [left] was built in Gothic style around 1500. The tabernacle dates from the 15th century. In the late 20th century the old church had become too small for the parish. A new, modern church was built next to it in 1997. Sunday masses are held in the new church, while the old church remains in use for special occasions such as weddings and baptisms.
