Fortified Church

The fortified church St. Oswald

kirche The church St. Oswald is one of the oldest and most impressive fortified churches in Austria. It was and is very important for Austria in terms of art and cultural history.
The church is closely linked to the history of Eisenerz and it has been the religious center of the church community of Innerberg/Eisenerz for many centuries. You can reach the church, which was built in the late Gothic- style, via the so-called “church stairs”. These stairs start at the “Bergmannsplatz”, a place which is in the center of the town. The hike into the fortified church is awarded with a spectacular view of Eisenerz. The very old organ loft is worth seeing too.
