The church is illuminated at night and commands a very prominent position in the lovely village of Kaprun. Inside is beautiful and it has been very well looked after. Well worth a visit.

If you are in Kaprun, especialy in Winter time you should visit this church. It is very close to the village center, next to Maiskogel ski resort, and has an excellent view of Kaprun and Kitzsteinhorn.
