The Minoritenkirche (Minorite Church) is a 13th-century Gothic church that later received a baroque facelift. If you think the tower looks a little stubby, you’re right on the button: it was ‘shortened’ by the Turks in 1529. The most noteworthy piece inside is a mosaic copy of da Vinci’s Last Supper, commissioned by Napoleon. The website has details of services and concerts.
Sunday services are held at 8.30am in German and at 11am in Italian. The church is used for occasional classical concerts and choir recitals throughout the year.
