station Pertisau - Trinity Church

Summer stories with Emperor Maximilian I

The Trinity Church in Pertisau was built from 1966 until 1968 according to the plan of the world-famous Tirolean architect Clemens Holzmeister (1886 - 1983). Holzmeister created numerous monumental and sacred buildings, merging the simple Tirolean building tradition with modernity. 


The church building itself rises above a polygonal ground plan. Its architectural design language is characterised above all by a generous spatial conception and a functional design. The light-flooded interior of the church is essentially defined by the white marble altar, the dark wooden ceiling and a round glass mosaic. It is set into the apse and shows the Agnus Dei - the Lamb of God - as a bronze relief in the centre.


The Ave Maria

Every day at 12:00 and 18:00, visitors to Pertisau can experience it for themselves with their own ears: the Holy Trinity Church, which is also the parish church of this idyllic village, has a unique feature. Instead of the usual church bells, the Ave Maria is played to tell the time acoustically.
