Parish church of St. Georgen am Kreischberg

St. Georgen am Kreischberg

The Church of St. Georgen is in the middle of the village of St. Georgen am Kreischberg. It was only in the later Gothic period that the church was gothicized through a reconstruction, made three-aisled and vaulted. On August 23, 1188, the Romanesque basilica, which had probably been built for a decade, was consecrated by the Archbishop of Salzburg, Albert, and handed over to its intended use. On June 3, 1298, Otto von Liechtenstein's feudal contract was transferred by Archbishop Rudolf von Salzburg to the parish church of St. Georgen an der Mur, which had to serve as the cafeteria of the St. Virgil monastery in Friesach.

The Gothic, three-nave church is one of those church buildings that are not original Gothic buildings, but church buildings from an older, Romanesque style period, at that time single-nave and flat-roofed.
