Salzburg Photos: Trinity Church (Dreifaltigkeitskirche)
return to "summer
The Trinity Church or Dreifaltigkeitskirche is one of four churches that Baroque
super-star architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach built in Salzburg. The
other three are the Kollegienkirche (Collegiate Church, his masterpiece), the
Krankenhauskirche St. Johannes
in Salzburg's main
hospital and the Markuskirche for the Ursulinen nunnery.
The Dreifaltigkeitskirche is the focal point of the
Makartplatz square with a
whole bunch of attractions: The Landestheater (the province's theatre), one
entrance to the Mirabell Gardens, the living place of
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (now
a museum) and the birthplace of physicist
Christian Doppler, to name but a few.
Sadly, the Makartplatz is an important traffic hub and thus rather noisy and not
the most pleasant corner of Salzburg.
