“Best church in SB”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Athough the Dom is considered the main church, this is far more appealing, both in structure as at atmosphere. The ceiling is spectacular - makes you think of Barcelona's SF. Well worth a visit.

“Prefered to the cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We prefered this to the cathedral. It felt used and loved throughout the years. Several different styles, some fragments of wall painting and an atmosphere of quiet .

“Dates back to the 8th Century!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

The church was rebuilt in the 13th century and consecrated in 1221.It served as a parish church until 1635. It is well worth a visit while in Salzburg.

“Gorgeous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Walked in just to take a look and WOW! How incredibly beautiful! As we walked around admiring, the organist began to play which made for a totally incredible visual and audial experience. We stayed until the playing stopped. It was a total immersion sort of experience and very moving!
