Create an itinerary including Franziskanerkirche
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.

  • Another of the many attractive churches in Salzburg, but difficult to get a view of due to how compact the area around it is.

  • a medieval church with an unique atmosphere. The Franziskaner Kirche is more than 1000 years old and an architectural treasure. When you enter the building please remember that it is a god house, and respect the catholic community. There are also people inside who pray and they need their silence. I recommend to sit down for a while and feel the spirit.
  • It is a beautiful place not far from the centre of Salzburg. A place for any history buffs and definitely a place worth visiting if you're religious
