The historic village

Eggmühl at the time of the battle in 1809

From 30 May to 02 June 2019


In 1809, the Austrian army under Duke Carl crossed the borders of Bavaria without declaring war.

The generals of Austria had urged the war, they wanted to take advantage of Napoleon's absence, who was in Spain.

On April 9, the Austrians invaded Bavaria.

On 16 April, they once again occupied Munich, but otherwise the march advanced slowly.

The Corsican, who came by stage-coach from Paris, entered Bavarian soil in Donauwörth and ordered his troops.

On April 19, there were first fights near Teugn and Hausen.

The following battles at Abensberg were to go down in history later known as the battle at Abensberg. It was there, where the little Emperor gave fiery speech to the Bavarian troops. The battles went quickly.

In Landshut, Austria's troops could once again just save themselves over the Isar. But there, the Emperor of the French received the message that the majority of Austrians together with the Archduke was directly at the opposite of a small Bavarian corps with Davout and Levfebvre at their side in Schierling and Eggmühl.

Both sides were gathering their troops there.

Will the Austrians win or will Napoleon get there in time?

We will see it in Eggmühl. Join us, to your success!
