This architecturally unusual church is built in two parts. The main section, the church proper, is approximately a square. The interior is in Baroque style, a trompe-l’œil fantasy in pinks and greys. The ceiling takes the form of a dome, which was painted in fresco...More

Eisenstadt is a cute little town without huge attractions, so we enjoyed all of the smaller ones. Bergkirche was really just a walk-thru visit, but it was pretty. There was not a lot of information in English, but it was very typical of small European...More
