Evangelische Pfarrkirche Hallstatt Wonderful little church sitting on the banks of Hallstatter Lake with it clock tower seen from all over the town. Compared to the Catholic churches all over, the inside of this Lutheran church is beautiful in a simple way.

This is a lovely church in a lovely town. True to the origins of the early Protestants, the building is not elaborate like the nearby Catholic cathedrals, but is beatiful, with wonderful craftsmanship. Well worth a stop.

A beautiful old church right off main square. You can see the tower from almost anywhere in town. Beautiful interior and construction. A must see while in the old town of Hallstatt.

This church has a great exterior for Hallstatt photos. The interior is quite plain and a contrast to the Catholic church in town. I would give the exterior 4 stars for photos and the interior 2 stars.

The church interior is not that exciting, but it is a nice spot to get out of the tourist chaos near the boat dock. Also, the exterior does look nice in all those Hallstatt photos.

This is an excellent example of the Protestant desire to strip the places of worship to their basic important features, unlike the Baroque to Rococo decor of the Roman Catholic churches of Austria. Spend time in the congregation and you may get a sense of...More

Although most people think of Austria as largely Catholic (which, to be fair, it is), the iconic church in the postcards of Hallstatt is this Lutheran church with its towering spire. It has some nicely-presented history boards inside about the influence of the Reformation in...More
