The temple is located on the top of a hill that rises almost 500 meters above the city. The church is an important pilgrimage center for Austria. It was built at the beginning of the 18th century in the late Baroque architectural style. The main facade consists of two symmetrical 60-meter towers and a portal of the main entrance. The interiors are distinguished by lush decoration in the best traditions of the Baroque style.

Worth visiting, it is really beautiful both from the inside and outside. If you are lucky to come at the right time, you might even hear a piece on the pipe organ, which is to say the least spectacular.
Definitely put it on your to-see list
Great architecture! Great Paintings on the ceiling! Excellent place on hill top! Very peaceful!
Wonderful church for pilgrimage
A Catholic church with beautiful interior. The landscape from the church is also nice. Bear in mind that the church is located on a very steep hill. If you arrive by public transport, you should take a number of steps to get reach the church.
Impressive site, although a lot of steps to climb to actually reach the church from the tram stop.
Great basilica with historical background.located in a beautiful neighbourhood. Also easy access with public transport although it is away from the center
Very beautiful church located in the hills of Graz.
Hard to get to unless you have a car but thoroughly recommend going. Really beautiful.
Imposing cathedral that impresses not only through sheer size but also through the very detailed and ornate baroque interior. Located on a hill and accessible via a flight of a few hundred steps makes the whole experience even greater, you have a nic.. Read more »e view from the top as well.
The church can easily be reached by the no. 1 bus from the city center and is free to enter. The facade has been fully renovated and at the time of my visit they were putting the finishing touches on revamping works for the interior, it looks amazing.
The church is very pretty, and you can get a nice view from the top...
impressive church. Nice option for a visit is with tram nr. 1. There is a small farmers market at the last tramway stop - probably just on Saturdays
Really nice cathedral. Great walks and great views all around.
One of the major Catholic churches in Graz. Situated near the terminal station of tramway line 1, just up the hill. Widely seen because of its exposed site. Definitely worth a visit.
Nice park for a walk in the dark nearby, next to the cemetery, if you are into that sort of walks
Worth a trip if you visit Graz! Nicely renovated and impressive location on top of the hill
A must, nothing less and nothing more.
Awsome view over graz city
Just beautiful Monument ?
Location: there's a big set of stairs to climb up first. But it's definitely worth it ;)
You could also used it like a real optimist and use it as a sports thing. There where many people just running it up and down. During the stairs walk t.. Read more »here will be plenty of opportunities to sir down and rest.
There's also a road that leads all the way up there.
Building: beautiful old building, with magical paintings covering the complete ceiling. We were lucky to visit it during a session, so we heard the music acustics. For the creeps out there -> you can check out to skeletons of 2 martyrs in a glas casket! If you walk all down way down the aisle and enter the little chapel on the left side -> another surprise will hit you, but I won't spoiler you!
You can afterwards walk around the church, enjoy a view over to the snow covered mountains.
Shop: outside is a little church shop selling stuff like candles, Jesus pictures, randomly coffee beans.
Restaurant: behind the church is a little restaurant, which is currently closed due to Covid19 measurements.
Experience - the church is so beautiful and worth seeing it, that I'm considering to plan my wedding in there.
Such a beautiful church with a such a beautiful view! Absolutely serene!
Great place for a Sunday walk. From the tramway you can walk up the hill after after the visit to the Basilica, you can continue to the forest and back to the city centre of Graz.
Don’t miss the eagles statues on the side of the basilica
It is located in a quiet corner. I have been there twice, quite lovely place. You can take bus to reach there.
