Abbey Church
A-2640 Gloggnitz - Austria

The former abbey church of Gloggnitz, which is dedicated to Maria Schnee and St. Oswald, can be found in the castle grounds. The oldest part of the church is the Gothic Frauenkapelle, probably built in the 11th century. It was unconnected with the main church until Baroque modernisation in the 18th century when it was combined with the Gothic main church. The thirty six metre high tower, with its bulb roof and huge bells, was added at the same time. The highlight of the church’s interior is the altar with an altarpiece showing Jesus, Mary and St. Oswald. At the sides of the altar are statues of St. Wolfgang, St. Benedict, St. Leonhard with a donkey and angels.
