No church in Austria can host more people. But size is not all that matters. If you stand in the middle of the cathedral you feel that this is a place of contemplation and worship. You simply feel like in an old cathedral. They have...More

The cathedral was started in 1862 and finished in 1924. The bell tower stands at 134.7 metres. (A higher spire was not approved, because, at the time, no building was allowed to be taller than the South Tower of the St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna)....More

This is a Neo Gothic church, begun in 1862 and completed in 1924, in a modern version of a glorious 800 year old style. You may ask 'Why', as I did. The answer is interesting if disheartening. It was built to be bigger than Vienna's...More

Unfortunate timing for us - in that they appear to be in full-swing with respect to renovations. That being said, it is true about the stained-glass windows: they are spectacular. Regardless of the construction - it's still well worth the visit

We were interested in this cathedral as the guide books said it was the biggest in Austria. A slow 15 minute walk from Hauptplatz through the old town to the cathedral is a lovely route to take. The cathedral is undergoing renovations and was almost...More

This cathedral is imposing from the inside and the outside. I loved the combination of net-Gothic elements with the modern, crisp stained glass windows. The church is quiet and peaceful outside and visiting the side chapels and attending Mass here was a true pleasure.
