Although a place of Christian worship has stood at the north end of Mönchsberg for ~1000 years, the Late Gothic incarnation that you see here – the Mülln Parish Church – was built in the 15th century. The double lantern spire was added in 1673. Although I didn’t have time to visit, the interior is apparently lovely. As always, no visits during Mass.
Prince Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau didn’t just favor the Capuchins. In a spurt of generosity, he gifted this church to Augustine hermits in 1605. Their monastery, the Augustinerkloster, and their famous pub/beer garden – Braustübl/Augustiner Bräu – are right next door.
Architecture Bonus: The building below the church is the Leprosenhaus, or “Leper’s Hospital.” In the 13th century, it was known as the Sündersiechenhaus ( the “poor soul’s hospital”).
