Built by darling of Salzburg, the Baroque architect Fischer von Erlach, this large 1707 church was built for the nearby Benedictine university. The Greek cross church is revered for its curved facade, Johann Michael Rottmayr’s paintings, the large and bright windows, and the 1735 high altar by Anton Pfaffinger that deptics allegories for music, poetry, painting and architecture. Also check out the statues of the various saints in the side chapels of the church. They are St. Thomas, St. Luke, St. Ivo, and St. Catherine for the schools of theology, medicine, law and philosophy respectively. And the beautiful 1868 organ is by Matthew Mauracher. The church is part of the city’s old town UNESCO World Heritage.

Architecturally interesting but the all over white makes it look half finished. Much of it appears to be intended to be painted with places where in other churches there would be a painting (like the nearby Cathedral), empty niches that should have statues. Obviously the collegiate congregation like the minimalist theme.
This a a beautiful church inside and out. The architecture is very beautiful.
Beautiful and White church. I never seen before all white. If I visit agian maybe i come again.
Would have liked it much better if we had actually got inside. We could not, though, due to some rehersals.
White church, it's white inside out. Very calm place, I suggest you visit Salzburg cathedral after seeing this one
