St. Stephen’s Tulln Parish Church

Church

Description

The Tulln parish church is nearly 1000 years old and was among the early parish churches to be established by the Babenbergs. It is Romanesque at its core with a Gothic chancel and towers and an interior in Baroque style.

Along with the parish church, there is also the Late Romanesque Tulln charnel house from the mid-13th c, an ossuary with a dual Royal Chapel and the famous funnel-like portal.

Of particular note are the west portal, aka the Apostles’ Gate, as well as the five-bay nave, the high chancel and the high altar. The lovely side chapels are also impressive.

Public arrival is easily accessible by train or bus.
