St. Nikolaus Kirche


The church St. Nikolaus is considered as the gem of sacred buildings of the Eastern Alps. As a result of the recent excavations a preceding building from the 17th century with an length of 11 meters as well as a funeral urne from the 2nd century have been found. The frescoes romanesque inside the church are a particular treasure. A remarkable sight is the transition of the tower upper storeys to an octagon, a construction style which can only seldom be admired in the Alpine region.
