Christuskirche Salzburg

Salzburg, Austria

Consecrated in September 1867, the Christuskirche Salzburg was the first Protestant church in the province of Salzburg. The brick building on Elisabethkai is the only example of Romantic historicism found in Salzburg today. With its balanced proportions, a blend of the Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance styles, and the colorful change from the muted red building to the light grey ornamentation, the church gives a picturesque overall impression. The interior of the Christ Lutheran Church is austere. The beautiful stained glass window in the chancel was made by Albert Birkle in 1950. It expressively portrays Christ as a Good Shepherd with the lamb and the two Apostles, Peter and John. The lower part shows the Protestant emigrants in their traditional Salzburg costumes.
