In the 16th century, Martin Luther's reformation teachings fell on fertile soil in the Inner Salzkammergut. After the Counter-Reformation, the “tolerance patent” allowed Protestants to practice their religion. The Evangelical Church Hallstatt was built on 30th of October 1785 as a prayer house.
After the decree of Emperor Franz Joseph I, all Evangelicals were guaranteed full homeland rights and equal rights in church and political life. At that time, 500 people from Hallstatt professed the Evangelical faith. From then on the new church began. In October 1863, after only five years of construction, the new Church in Hallstatt was completed.
These days, the Evangelical Church, a few steps from the historical market square, also regularly invites you to cultural concerts. Especially in the summer months, numerous musicians from all over the world come to the World Heritage town Hallstatt to perform numerous pieces in the church. At the portal to the church there is a board with additional information on the history in German and English.
