The village obviously takes pride in its inner city. The houses in both the upper and lower city are in good repair and sport bright and probably coordinated colors. The city center is worth a small detour and free parking was surprisingly easy to find.

The beautiful town of Scharding has many colourful buildings, and although it is small... it is defiantly worth a visit if you are close. A small romantic area, where you can relax by the river and go the museum of the area.

The Oberer Stadtplatz (upper city square) of Scharding is a nice collection of colorful baroque buildings well preserved. The lower square worth a walk as well, untill the river. There you will meet the real past of the city.
