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. 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.

  • A surprisingly plain gothic-style church. Not worth setting aside time or going out of your way to see.

  • This town has a lot of churches. This one is towards the center of the town. It’s a large church. I thought it was quite nice. It adds to the “skyline” of churches in the town.
