Nádherný kostel v klidném malém městečku Ingolstadt. Kostel je obrovský a postavený ze samých cihel. Uvnitř kostela je oltář nádherně, dřevěně zdobený starým řezbářským uměním. Oltář lze obejít kolem dokola. Dost neobvyklé. Monumentální jsou i obrovské sloupy a celkově nádherná klenba kostela. Rozhodně stojí za to se jít dovnitř podívat ať jste či nejste věřící.

Bellissima Chiesa cattolica con l' interno in stile barocco, che conserva alcune bellissimi bassorilievi policromi realizzati in legno. Una bellissima raffigurazione della Madonna accoglie i fedeli e i visitatori all' ingresso

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
