Parish Church of St Stephen

Kirchdorf in Tirol, Dorfplatz 1

Pfarrkirche Hl. Stephan Kirchdorf in Tirol


The place name "Kirchdorf" (church village) already indicates that this settlement is ancient cultural soil and can refer to centuries of church history. The first church, built in the 8th century, was built over a secular building from the Roman imperial period (around 400 AD). The early medieval church was built around 800, the Romanesque church in 1200 and the late Gothic church in 1510. It was baroqueised in the middle of the 18th century. In 1816, the interior of the church was remodelled in the classicist style. Today's parish church of St. Stephen stands dominantly on the village square and was restored in 1986/87/89.
