There were perhaps 30 people in the building and it was over crowded. Its amazing how little room there is on the inside. I understand the parishoners have to stand during their 3 hour long Sunday Service.

This is a small but very beautiful church. I love the architecture of churches and this one was pretty spectacular. It has 5 gold dome spires. It has a wonderful calm, spiritual feel inside. Ladies visiting do not need to borrow scarves for their head (I asked). I paid for 2 candles - be careful about that. The two she... More

The church is majestic from the distance with its towering gold domes. To view the very small but exquisite interior, one must pay a two Euro entrance fee. There is an ornately decorated sarcophagus dedicated to Elizabeth, who died at a young age and was the wife of Adolf. Although the actual space is shockingly small and confining, it is... More

Know that the walk down from the funicular isn't that long but it is a little steep and if you have trouble walking you might want to take the car and park in the parking lot closer to the church. The view of the church is amazing from the parking lot as the gold domes are surrounded by the trees.... More

Although this church is small, it packs in a lot of detail. The outside is simple and the gold domes make the church feel majestic. When you go inside, the details will overwhelm you, especially the artwork. There are several statues and Russian texts displaying Russian artwork, writing and saints. The tomb with the statue of a lovely young lady... More

The inside of the church is just as impressive as the outside, so pay the small fee to go inside. Just don't expect anything to be in English🙂 No photos are allowed inside the church.

Wether you make your way to this beauty by walking, or by driving with your car or taking a ride on the "Nerobergbahn", it's worth it. But: You haven't to enter the small church, there isn't much to see inside. Save the Euros and get yourself an ice-cream instead.
