Murau

Gothic architecture
The parish of Murau is characterized by its five historically valuable churches, as well as by its various forms of worship. Around 250 volunteers, who are invited once a year to the staff party, testify to a lively parish life: everyone contributes according to their own talents.

On the southern edge of Murau, on a wooded ridge near the Grünstels Castle, the slim, lofty building of the small Leonhardikirche rises. It stands in the place of the former St. Katharina's castle chapel and was probably built soon after St. Anne's Church, in 1439 it was already known as a pilgrimage church. The soaring hall with reticulated vaults continues in the long, light-flooded choir. The large windows have rich tracery, the keystones and consoles are imaginatively decorated. The high altar, pulpit and right side altar were made around 1640. On the parapet of the music gallery hang the coats of arms of Anna Neumann, five of her men and the coat of arms of the Schwarzenbergs. The entire church area is enclosed by a defensive wall, to which a staircase to the Holy Sepulcher Chapel, built in 1680, is connected in the west. In 1994 and 1995 the exterior facade of the church, richly decorated with artistic stone carving, was restored. Wolfgang Wieland
