The first part of the church was rather common with very little decoration but when approaching the altar we found how amazing this church is. The central part with the statues is very good but not far from there a series of sanctuaries surround this central altar. Very beautiful in general and a must to see in Salzburg

This is a beautiful church. I liked it the best of all in Salzburg!! The church was not over cluttered with art works and just so peaceful!

Perfect view onto the city. Make sure to go up there at least once. Note that there is no elevator and you have to take the stairs.

This is not as ornate as many but just as beautiful with all the white carved marble inside. Another one to put on the list while strolling around the old town

Very different style than the Cathedral. Nice stone columns and interesting ceiling. It is dark in the entrance, but brighter in the back. Worth walking though for 30 minutes.

Saw many people going into this church on a Sunday morning. Followed them in and was surprised to find a Catholic mass beginning. The church is almost entirely of stone. Nothing ornate, just 5 columns of stone rising up to hold the roof. Very different from the ornate churches of Italy or even the USA. A rather plain, yet powerful... More

A magnificent church both outside and inside. The interior is just beautiful and there is plenty to see inside. At the time I went in, there was a big tour but they weren't being loud and I was able to find somewhere to sit and marvel at the beautiful interior. There is plenty to see within this one building and... More
