Parish Church of St. Gallus
Parish Church of St. Gallus Review
The small parallel streets running uphill from Ehreguta Square roughly outline the boundaries of the town in the Middle Ages. Hidden around the corner of the building at the beginning of Georgen-Schilde-Strasse are the Meissnerstiege (Meissner steps), named after a local poet, that lead from the Old City to the parish church of St. Gallus. At the bottom of the steps, follow Schlossbergstrasse up the hill to the church, which combines Romanesque, Gothic, and rococo elements. The interior is decorated simply with pastel coloring instead of the usual excessive gilding. Empress Maria Theresa donated the money for the high altarpiece. You'll notice the monarch's features on one of the shepherdesses depicted there.
