Bad Dreikirchen

Three small churches, church of Saint Gertraud, Saint Nikolaus and Saint Magdalena, built in the 12th and 15th century in an incredibly beautiful location with a fantastic view over the Eisack Valley. Visitors will be surprised by the high level of artistic skill of the late-Gothic frescoes.

Dreikirchen can only be reached on foot along beautiful hiking trails for young and old.
A look inside the churches is always worth it!
Good to know...
Barbian Waterfalls & Tree Churches (Dreikirchen)
Start and finish: village centre of Barbian
Time: 4:00 hours
Distance: 8.6km
Difference in altitude: 560m
Max. altitude: 1,353m

Route
The trail to the Barbian waterfalls starts in the village centre of Barbian (refreshment facilities). Take the waterfall trail first to the lower and then to the upper waterfall. Take trails 34 and 27 then to Briol (refreshment facilities). Continue to Bad Dreikirchen (refreshment facilities) on trail 4. To return to Barbian take trail 6 first of all. It then branches off into trail 3. Back to the starting point on the Dorfstraße.
The spectacular Barbian waterfalls are of course the attraction of this hike. They cascade down a total of 200 metres to the depths. Along the trail however there are also other things to see, for example, the leaning steeple of the church of Barbian.
Those interested in architecture will have a lot of pleasure with the Gasthof (inn) Briol. It is a fine example of Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) in the heart of the Alps. The artist Hubert Lanzinger has created a total work of art, in which it is possible to live and eat, out of a former shelter.
Dreikirchen should also be mentioned. It is an especially interesting architectural ensemble, constructed on the site of an ancient spring sanctuary.
Info Dreikirchen
If you want to take a look inside the churches, please ask for the key from the nearby Messner restaurant.
