The Apple Priest

Korbinian Aigner, the "Apple Priest" of Hohenbercha

Korbinian Aigner (1885 - 1966) was widely known as the “apple priest”. He was priest in Hohenbercha from 1937 onwards. Already in his early years he dedicated his time also to fruit growing and over the years he painted some 1,000 pictures of different types of fruit. Even when he was an prisoner in the concentration camp of Dachau he grew apple trees. In every room of our house you find a nice picture painted by the apple priest Korbinian Aigner.
