First, I could not enter the cathedral as the main gate was closed. So, in that case, try to find next gate beside of the main gate. It is automatic gate :-) You can feel like my title, so huge and elegant church. Many paintings will also give impression to you.

This church has two mail altars ( one in the main church, one in the basement or winter church ) and twelve side altars, one nicer than the other

I think it is the tallest church in Graz and I liked the exterior, but interior did not impress me,..

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.
