This is a Roman Catholic cathedral in a French high Gothic style.

This religious place seats 20,000, it is the largest (130 meters / 430 ft long), but not the highest church (only 135 m / 443 ft )in Austria, it... More

This church is very nice windows design. I really love the art in all windows. Entrance is for free so it was good to visit. It is the biggest church in Linz and located in the middle of the city.

The cathedral was impressive although it was not an over-the-top baroque one. The stained glass windows were particularly impressive. Unusual in that they weren't all Biblical scenes but rather scenes depicting the history of Linz.

This is an amazing church in Linz. Neo-Gothic in style, this church is simply huge, adorned with gorgeous stained glass windows, side altars and an amazing gold-laden crucifix hanging above the main altar in the cathedral. I've visited this amazing structure twice in the past year, as my limited travels take me through Linz, and have been impressed both times.... More

This neogothic church was made by the same architect that finished the cathedral in Cologne. The stained glasses are superb

Quite a few people know that Mariendom is just a few meters less high than Stefansdom in Vienna. Due to the sunny weather a stained-glass windows give an amazing light. From time to time in front of the Mariendom there are some installations or concerts. There's a parking exactly nearby.

Large it most certainly is, and very striking from the outside. was lucky to be in Linz during their fabulous U19 festival which gave me the opportunity to witness a live digital dance performance inside the cathedral at 11pm. stunning! worth seeing. lovely architecture.

We were only in Linz for one day and for most of that we were on a shore excursion to the Czech Republic. All we had time for was a stroll through the main part of the town and we wandered into this cathedral. So glad we did. It was absolutely stunning - you really felt how big God is... More

When you've seen umpteen cathedrals throughout Europe it's difficult to be impressed. This one is noted for its sheer size, massive columns on the interior and some interesting stained glass windows. We happened upon an English mass being presented and were surprised at how casual the service was and the attendance by what looked like multinational congregants.
