This massive church is on the corner of the Universitatplaz. On entering you see that there are no standard row of pews as expected. It is very pristine and minimalist. No gilt and few paintings,it creates a very serene space.

One of the purest examples of baroque architecture in Austria is often overlooked despite the fact it is second only to the cathedral in size, and has an impressive convex façade. The main hall has white walls without paintings - sparse use of sculptures and...More

This looks very smart and white on the outside and we were thinking it will be highly decorated and a bit over the top inside. No it was not, very white and reasonably plain inside with not a lot of over the top decoration. Very...More

A minimalist church...white on white and some gold. If you are looking for a beautiful church that is restored in a quiet and special way this is the one I’d recommend. The Dome is simple, white and a beatiful view when you lie down on...More

Kollegienkirche serves as the University of Salzburg parish church. Although not overly ornate in comparison to the many other churches in the Salzburg area, it was none-the-less impressive. The various side altars were particularly beautiful. Reading about the restoration was interesting and overall was worth...More

The church is empty and that is nice. Recently restored with lots of details on the job done. Nice installation with music this summer.

Really amazing inside, the baroque style is quite different from the norm, this one is stark white walls and ceilings with gold paintings and statues in each corner. Definitely worth a visit.

Very sure this beautiful church reflected from a past golden years, during a kampung (village) of talented artist surrounded places, such as named: Mozart, Karajan, Dopller etc. No wonder birth of talented people from a sacred place.
