St Wolfgangskirche, Niederösterreich

While in Kirchberg-am-Wechsel we were given a tour of a disused church perched up on the mountainside. It has suffered a lot of misfortune over the years (if you can read German there is a wikipedia article here), it burnt down and was rebuilt twice, and is furnished with all kinds of leftovers from other churches, which makes it more interesting.

Historical graffiti.


Stained glass window borrowed from another church and kind of shoe-horned in.


School project from the 50s, a scale model of the church. There were various kid’s and teacher’s names signed on some of the bricks.
