It is the most important place of worship so it is definitely worth seeing. It is free of charge
Beautiful church, a great piece od history and art.
Imposing, ornate church in old town. Architecturally impressive, spiritually difficult. Sadly, reminds one of the great cost, which undoubtedly the poor paid for in one way or the other. Area historical interests are within walking distance.
It's a cool place, architecture-wise.

Very beautiful, would visit again
Usually a cathedral takes centre stage in the heart of the city - this is a little to the side but still worth the visit

In the Gothic period, however, the facades were covered with paintings. One cool has been preserved, the so-called Gottesplagenbild ('God's Plagues'). Marks the terrible plague of the late 15th century. Since it was considered to be the plague of God's punishment, the fresco displays a plea for forgiveness and reconciliation.
The frescoes in the church date from the times of Emperor Frederick III. Among them: a fragment showing St. Christopher, clearly recognizable as Frederick wearing the Styrian ducal crown. The interior of the church is richly decorated and full of beautiful paintings.
It feels good energy and the atmosphere is pleasant.
It was impressive and beautiful
This is, no doubt, an amazing cathedral. Beautiful on the inside. But I can never get over the fact that for millennia man is constructed these enormous palaces at an unconscionable expense.
The exterior of the church isn't too attractive, but the inside is very beautiful. It is worth to take a look, and next the church you can also visit the Mausoleum.
An imposing cathedral with a very ornate interior. Take your time to admire the details of the sculptures and the smaller side alters. Entrance is free but a donation is appreciated. Also don’t miss the frescoe outside behind the glass, albeit .. Read more »faded and unclear, but the description underneath is informative.
