“Beautiful church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Very pretty church in the centre of the village. The Mozart evening was good but the pews were very uncomfortable and it was expensive.

“A pilgrimage church!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

An amazing piece of art, the altar is the main attraction. The sculptor and painter Michael Pacher is from this small town by the lake of Wolfgang zee. He was responsible in making this altarpiece.

The church is situated by the lake with a breathtaking view.

“Simple yet beautiful ....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

St. Woflgang, just about over an hour from Salzberg, is on the northern shore of the Wolfgangsee Lake and the church dominates this charming little town. The church has been a pilgrimage site now for many hundred years - actually ever since Wolfgang's was canonized in the 11thC. The pilgrim's trail is visible across Schafberg mountain which stands behind. We walked up the cobbled streets to the church that overlooks the lake. It's famed for its altarpiece - a polyptych by MIchael Pacher a 15thC Tyrolean artist- believed to be one of the finest works of art. The church exudes peace, and we stayed there quite a while to soak in its serenity.

For a small village this is a remarkable old church with lots of ornate gold statues.

“Magnificent Altarpiece”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

This small parish church in the center of St. Wolfgang, Austria, is a gem. The Michael Pacher carved wood and painted altarpiece is spectacular. The second altar, though quite grand in its own right, is distracting and misplaced in the otherwise fairly simple church. Worth a visit. Even the bells while staying in town are a reassuring presence.
