The Herz Jesu Kirche (Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus) is in my opinion the most beautiful church in Graz. It is the tallest in the city and although it is not an original gothic building, is still very impressive. Watch the pond in front of the church steps, it changes shape every few minutes.

In my oppinion, this is not the most beautiful church in Graz but still outstanding since it doesn't have onion domes - almost all the churches in Graz have them

I have been living in Graz for 15 months now and only now I managed to visit this church. It is beautiful and certainly in my list for some time! We reached it during a First Communion messe and we totaly loved it! The building itself is gorgeous, the statues, the paintings, everything! It is a nice visit if you... More

Iconic ! So Tall you can see it from almost everywhere. It is hidden in a residential area above the Technical University, but definetly worth a visit. + there is a nice bakery store across the street :-)

This is a fairy tale castle, the giant wooden castle door magically opens, to a beautiful church. The church has antique pews and great decoration The green space and area around the church are filled with children and families enjoying the area. Fairytale....go see for yourself.

Incredible architecture, but the best part is just walking around outside. You can't go into the main chapel, but maybe you can during a Sunday service? I'm not sure. But the one chapel you can enter from the side is quite cozy and quaint, some cool history within it. But I am still curious about that main chapel!

Fantastic View. If you come to Graz you must go there. They usually put light on the church until 10 p.m. which makes it more beautiful.

This Neogothic brick church is over 100 years old and takes up a whole city block. It was conceived by Bishop Zwerger as a basilica to the Sacred Heart, but ended up being a parish church. In recent decades the church has been restored inside and out and it now looks vibrant and fresh. Sometimes tours of the church and... More
