Sankt Gilgen Things to Do: 23 reviews and 56 photos
This church originally dates back to the early 14th century, but it was remodeled as the existing Baroque structure in the 18th century. Mozart's grandparents were married here and his mother Maria Pertl was baptized here.
The interior is simple and elegant and is a perfect place for an intimate wedding. There are chandeliers hanging from the ceiling (see the last picture in my travelogue) and the wooden benches and golden trimmings of the altar give it a very traditional feel.
Outside, there is an attractive flowery cemetery with excellently maintained graves complete with well-manicured walkways and on the sunny day that we visited, it was a great place for a stroll.
