Until the church is planted

Feldkirchen belonged to the Landshut Rent Office and the Dingolfing Regional Court of the Electorate of Bavaria . In the course of the administrative reforms in Bavaria , today's municipality was created with the municipal edict of 1818 .

20th century

In preparation for the planned war the built Wehrmacht after 1936 the airbase Straubing-Mitterhart Hausen . For this purpose, the property of the Jewish cattle dealer and wholesaler Otto Selz was expropriated. Before 1933, Selz had successfully brought a trial against the anti-Semite Julius Streicher and his propaganda paper Der Stürmer . SA men kidnapped him in a forest in March 1933 and murdered him. Even after 1945 the case never came to court.

Numerous prisoners from the Flossenbürg and Dachau concentration camps, who were interned in several labor camps, were used to build the runways and to clear the rubble . At the end of the war, one of the death marches , during which many prisoners were killed or died of exhaustion, also touched Feldkirchen. A memorial stone at a crossroad where a sign points to the barracks commemorates nine victims of this forced labor .

In the years 1986 to 1997 a village renewal was carried out.


On May 1, 1978, the previously independent community of Mitterharthausen was incorporated. In 1982 Saulbach was reclassified from the Leiblfing community to the Feldkirchen community.
