Franziskanerkirche, Salzburg

4.6
A fusion of Gothic and Romanesque architectural styles, Franziskanerkirche represents one of Salzburg's oldest churches. Stop by the church, located in the heart of the city's Old Town, and admire the exterior's medieval construction, dating from the 1200s. Its footprint is squat, its roof is relatively steep, and its facade features high arched windows. Make your way inside and note the change in appearance as you transition through the naves and vaulted ceilings to the original basilica. Wander through the different chapels within, and be sure to view the religious works of art and Baroque decorations that contrast with the rest of the building. With our international travel planner, Salzburg attractions like Franziskanerkirche can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Salzburg is just a historic city with churches all over the old town. The cathedral is one of the best things to see, but if you take more time, it will take you just a day to visit the church. This church also has a simple appearance, and the inside is dignified.
