The dominance of outstanding Gothic characteristics is wonderful. From the grand verticality of the steeple and tower on approaching to the slender forest of columns within, it was made to impress. And this it marvellously does. It is breathtaking to view the nave towards the...More

Admission is free but you can leave a small donation. The taking of photos is permitted. Worth stopping for quick peek because of its unusual and eclectic mix of styles. This tall church is older than the cathedral. Much of the architecture is Romanesque (e.g....More

We enjoyed our visit to St. Francis Church in the heart of old Saltzburg. Architecturally it is a blend of different styles (Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque). It has many interesting features, but don't miss the 12th century carving of a lion on the stairway to the...More

I dont like too much churches and all the mess around, but this one was very nice, there were no people when we visited, it gave us an oportunity to enjoy its silence. It was nice contemplation.

Most churches have paintings covering every inch of the walls, but here, they are bare to better reflect the light from the various-sized windows (by design). Two side altars have famous painted alterpieces which are worth spending some time admiring.
