Linz New Immaculate Conception Cathedral or Mariendom 1855

Linz New Immaculate Conception Cathedral or  Mariendom 1855
TO SEE ENLARGED AS ALL PICTURES HAVE BEEN REDUCED!!! The construction of the neo-Gothic cathedral was already initiated in 1855 by F.J. Rudiger, then Bishop of Linz, and the foundation stone was laid in 1862; The building was designed by the Cologne cathedral builder Vinzenz Statz; The cathedral was consecrated in 1924; The height of the tower was limited to 134 m (as it was not permitted to surpass St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna ); The cathedral can accommodate 20.000 worshippers and is also notable for its stained glass windows, including the famous "Linz Window" with scenes from the history of Linz (left front); At Christmas the crypt church contains one of the largest nativity scenes, measuring 12 m in length; Austria Linz New Cathedral (Mariendom).
