Former Augustinian Hermit Church

The former Augustinian Hermit Church in the town of Bad Radkersburg in Styria is a listed building .


The Augustinian Hermit Church and monastery was built from 1395 and abandoned by the Augustinian Hermits in 1542 . After that, the church was used as a landscape storage room . In 1614, probably in the course of the Counter Reformation, the church and monastery were handed over to the Capuchins . The Capuchin monastery was secularized in 1817 under Joseph II . Since then, the church has been used as a wine cellar and the monastery as a barracks. Because the church was used as a theater in the 1850s, the street on the western front was named Theatergasse . The monastery building was demolished in 1940 for the construction of a South Tyrolean settlement .


The church building is a slim structure with a high pitched roof. The eastern front was once part of the medieval fortifications and shows itself with a steeply raised square gable with an octagonal tower on top. The western front shows a pointed arch and a walled up, round window and the remains of an old portal coronation from the Gothic and baroque ox-eye windows .

The interior of the church was heavily modified after 1817 with the installation of the wine cellar.
