Mülln Parish Church

The district of Mülln was named after the many mills that one could once find in this part of Salzburg. It is the northern-most part of the Altstadt or Old Town and often neglected by international tourists, who usually come only for one attraction of the area: The Müllner Bräu or Augustiner Bräustübl. This brewery with huge beer halls and Austria's biggest beer garden is the area's claim to fame; the entrance to it can be found right behind the church in this picture, the Müllner Stadtpfarrkirche or Parish Church. The church was also part of the Augustinian monastery once; today, the former monastery is used by the parish administration and the brewery, which belongs to the Benedictine monastery of Michaelbeuern in the Flachgau village of Dorfbeuern. It is open troughout the year, only the beer garden closes during winter.
