Franziskanerkirche, Salzburg

(340+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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. Put Franziskanerkirche at the forefront of your travel plans using our Salzburg family vacation planner.

  • The Franciscan church is a church góticaconstruída to the middle class, a place of silent communion. Like most other churches in Salzburg was repeatedly devastated by fire. One of the special features of the Church is the magnificent Hall that reflects the fusion of light and darkness and the magnificent roof over the altar. Opening hours: daily from 6:30 to 7:30 pm and visitors are not allowed during mass.

  • Whilst exploring Salzburg Old Town it is certainly worth popping into, to admire the majestic and beautiful interior. Again free but a lot quieter than the main cathedral.  more »

  • Now THIS church is really special. I've gotta admit I am not a huge fan of Baroque (it's just too much for me), but the way this one is decorated and those funny little details you can find... yeah, it sort of convinced me Baroque wasn't that bad afterall.
  • I was not inside the church but from outside looks interesting
  • Opening hours: daily 6.30am-7.30 pm No visits during mass!
  • Beautiful gothic church dedicated to San Francisco and that its definitely worth a visit. Was founded in the 8th century Romanesque and Gothic as rebuilt in the thirteenth century as.
