This is really the Kollegienkirche so please those reviews also. I think there are many more reviews there. But I would definitely make it a stop on tour of Salzburg. It can be a short visit, but well worth the time. Please see my review under Kollegienkirche and the pics posted there.

An often ignored place due to its not so impressing exterior. However one is taken by surprise to see its grand marble interior and an equally interesting history behind the church. Numerous concerts are organised here at a nominal prices throughout the year.

This is the University church to serve the university students. It is often ignored by the visitors unaware of its history and the various purposes it was used by rulers of different periods apart from its original purpose.

In fact named Kollegienkirche. The church was closed due to renovationworks (woukd re-open 4 days later but by then we had travveled on), so only pix of its exterior. The Collegiate Church (Baroque) is the University Church and the sciences are central pictured in the high altar. 1623, Prince Archbishop Paris Lodron made plans for the church. Only 70 years...

This little gem of a Church often gets skipped because people only see the Dom. Make sure you take a 5 minute peek by or stop a bit longer and reflect. There are tons of concerts held here as well for very good price so check on the signage out front.
