  • Unfortunately the church was closed for visitors due to the renovations. Nevertheless it looks so powerful from outside and the mausoleum impressed us a lot.

  • What can I say about a cathedral? It’s monumental and baroque. Good to be here
  • Amazing gothic architecture with breathtaking baroque interieur. Recently renovated main hall with renovations in presbyterium ongoing. Great new lighting concept (albeit questinable choice of lamp-design) that shows you the interieurs timeless art from all angles. If you plan on attending a holy catholic mass service, choose a time when a choir sings, Graz has great choirs and the cathedral great accoustics. It's also a historicaly interesting building and it has an emperors mausoleum right next to it.
