Golling

South of Hallein lies the small town of Golling. At its centre stands the Church of St John the Baptist and St John the Evangelist, with a Gothic main nave and remodelled Baroque side naves. A small medieval castle, devoid of any ornaments and adjoined by a chapel with a Rococo altar, now houses a regional museum. Environs: There are many natural features of interest near Golling, including the Lueg Pass with the spectacular, 100-m (328-ft) deep Salzach river gorge, and the Schwarzbacher Wasserfall, better known as Gollinger Wasserfall (100 m/328 ft), much beloved by romantic painters of natural scenes. Also worth a detour is a visit to two interesting churches in the vicinty — St Ulrich’s in Scheffau and the late-Gothic St Nicholas’s Church near Torren, which stands high up on a rocky shelf.
