St. Elizabeth's Church Murau

St. Elizabeth's Church with the Protestant parish has been the site of the Protestant Diocesan Museum of Styria since 2001.


St. Elizabeth's Church was first mentioned in written records in 1457. In 1544/45, it was appointed a succursal church of Murau. The visitation record reports that Praedicanten (preachers) moved here in 1617-1619. The church possessed a single altar and no vestments. The Protestants worshipped here. In 1628, the infirmary and the church were expanded and rebuilt. St. Elizabeth's Church is a rectangular, early Baroque building, with a Gothic sacristy and a tower still preserved in the eastern section. From 1924 to 1975, St. Elizabeth's Church served as a gymnasium, and as a table tennis hall until 1977. In 2002, it was passed to the Evangelische Tochtergemeinde AB Murau-Lungau (daughter church) by Prince Karl Johannes of Schwarzenberg for the nominal sum of € 1.00.
