Ascending the steps to this lovely church left the crowds behind. It also provided a vantage point for fabulous views over the town and lake. Dramatic facades of the edifice in Gothic style, with a soaring tower and attractive stonework are to be seen. The...More

A small church with ornate carved altar screens. The small cemetery around the church is beautifully kept and there is an old fresco above the entrance which is most interesting. Be prepared for a steep walk up to the church as it is above the...More

This parish is the quintessential landmark, when i think about Hallstatt. It's presence is what you notice first, when your on the boat to Hallstatt. It's the same on the return boat ride. Such a pretty sight.

Beautiful. Can't miss this beautiful, well kept Church. Never see such beautifully decorated cemetery. And the walk up is worth it.

Apart from the views from this church, which is located up the hill, the real reason to visit is to see the wonderful alterpieces within. There are Gothic frescos and three winged altars inside. Nice to get away from the bustle of the village.

Up the hill, you can find this beautiful catholic church of hallstatt. It is not very hard to reach it. With beautiful yard and great landscape. Also don't forget visiting "Hallstatt Ossuary" or bones chamber.

The climb up the hill is not as hard as it looks from the lakeside, and this church is worth a visit. The altarpieces are lovely, the church burial yard is well-kept, and of course, the chapel with the skulls is outside the main church....More

The church itself is fairly small. But it is in such a great place. It's high up and gives great views of the town and the lake. And the alter is very nice. Also it has the room of skulls in the back.

It's a bit of a hike up here, but not too bad. The church is small and fine, but nothing to speak of in and of itself. The bone chapel behind the cemetery is a must visit, though.
