Lukas-Kern-Orphanage in Passau, Germany

In 1749, innkeeper Lukas Kern donated an orphanage for at least twelve boys and twelve girls. The building, today known as Bürgerliches Waisenhaus or Lukas-Kern-Kinderheim, was erected by Johann Michael Schneitmann.

The building is still in use as an orphanage. At the outside fresco, you see a depiction of Lukas Kern (left) and his wife (right).
