Pfarrkirche St. Oswald in Freiland

Deutschlandsberg

The Sankt Oswald church in Freiland is the Roman Catholic parish church in the area of the former convent in the municipality of Deutschlandsberg in Styria. Its history goes back to the first half of the 15th century. The area of the parish consists of the cadastral communities of Klosterwinkel and Rettenbach and part of the KG Sallegg (area of Dorfstatt) from the former community of Bad Gams.

The church was first mentioned in a document in 1434. However, a chapel has certainly existed since 1200, in which the priest Frodo celebrated Holy Mass when he came up from the church headquarters at that time, which is now known as the open air.


The church stands on the eastern back of the Schwarzkogel (Wolfsriegel) in the municipality of Deutschlandsberg in the village of Sankt Oswald in Freiland, Katastralgemeinde Klosterwinkel.
The location of the parish area meant that a number of farms from Osterwitz, Osterwitz-Winkel (including Pöschl, Kleinreinisch, Stoff and Stefflpeterkeusche / Pust) had shorter and better road connections to the church in St. Oswald than to their own parish church. [1 ] The same applied to a number of farms in the valley of the torrent in the cadastral municipality of Sallegg in the former municipality of Bad Gams. Those who died were buried in the open air in the cemetery of St. Oswald.
