Uma linda igreja, quase que escondida nas proximidades da pra?a principal de Linz. A entrada é gratuita e pareceu-me pouco visitada por turistas. Um bom exemplar do barroco, que lembra e muito as igrejas brasileiras de Minas Gerais.
Impressive spacious cathedral near Hauptplatz and it is worth taking few minutes to stop in and give pause to your day. The ornate gothic interior is impressive to admire in the still quite of the spacious church. If you are fortunate, as was I, to be there when the organist is playing you are in for a real treat.
Even for those of us "churched out" this is worth a look
It's a big church near the main town center and entrance is free. Biggest attraction for me was the paintings on the windows...beautiful drawings with colors.
It never ceases to amaze me when seemingly a church is a church etc, how so different they can be, so again I write from a personal perspective that we thought this cathedral ( basilica?) was just amazing, huge it is on the outside in outrageous Gothic style all flying buttresses and "wedding cake" detailing, and then inside, able to hold thousands of worshippers at the same time, however the scene stealer is undoubtedly the incredible stained glass windows with their small and delicate detailing, the shear number if them and their size, to see each one and pause long enough requires time, so make sure you allow enough! a beautiful experience.
I visited the Alter Dom with family on a Thursday in September. Located just off the Hauptplatz, with free entry and photos allowed inside, it is certainly worth a visit to see the lovely interior. Just a shame that it is 'built out' so that it is difficult to take a picture of the whole exterior, especially as the front directly faces another building.
Although not on the main street or square, this large church stands out against the skyline of the city. Outside it stands out against the smaller surrounding buildings and inside its is impressive, as are many European cathedrals. The stained glass is impressive and it certainly worth putting on a list of things to visit when in Linz
innen sehr dunkel, aber Ehrfurcht einfl??end, eine sehr gro?e Kirche, die zweitgr??te Kirche ?sterreichs.
If you appreciate gothic style, a perfect example is the Alter Dom of Linz. Its stained glass windows all around are truly a gem about Linz's history and personalities. But that's not all. Nice classical music concerts, specially organ, are a plus to enrich your visit. Free entrance to the monument.
