Instead of the chapel this church was a surprise for me. This was actually the highlight of the day. Being in this church you realize this must have been a rich community here. A very beautiful church and absolutely worth a visit.

A must-see when at Traunsee/ Salzkammeegut-region. A bit of a hidden treasure, since they built the tunnel and all through- traffic is passing fast without a stop in Traunkirchen-Ort (old village). It.s a great and more quiet alternative to St Wolfgang ( Wolfgangsee) or Hallstadt...More

Amazing location overlooking the lake. Large church in offering service in Traunkirchen. One of the most beautiful churches we have seen in Austria. As usual small cemetery on the grounds, overlooking lake. Immaculately kept.

The view of Traunsee lake from here is exquisite. We were here in January 2016 so a late review. Having a day sitting on the lakefront with our picnic was one of the most delightful things we did on our three month rail trip through...More

this tranquil town, next to a beautiful lake, is renowned for this lovely church. Note the different colors of people on the fisherman's pulpit. It is said that monk's built the pulpit.

One of the identifying parts of Traunkirchen's skyline, this beautiful church is impressive from the outside as well as inside. Perched right beside the lake, it makes for wonderful photographs. It's in a beautiful setting, surrounded by a nice park, and inside has a great...More

An excellent church, very peaceful in a small village with just a couple of shops. It was hot whilst we were there, and the views of the lake from the church were excellent.

Perched high above a glacial lake, Pfarrkirche boasts a marvelous view. Carefully tended graves fill the grounds with beautiful flowers, planted rather than placed in urns or vases. I saw my first Edelweiss growing here. The interior of the church is lovely and known for...More
