Also called the Church of Ignatius or the Jesuit Church, this lovely Baroque building was built between 1689 and 1683.

A famous bit of trivia about his church is that it has quite a musical legacy. Ludwig van Beethoven wrote his Drei Equales for four trombones for performance here in the cathedral. Anton Bruckner, who used to be the church organist, performed his 7-part Ave Maria here. Consquently, the annual Bruckner festival is held at this church.

Though plain on the outside, the church is quite lavish on the inside. The highlights are:

  • The ornate wooden pulpit.
  • The high altar of many marble statues.
  • the painting of Saint Aloysius.
  • the faces of monsters in the presbytery.
  • The Baroque organ.

  • Stay for the mass.

  • I don't hate it!

  • A perfect example of doms of its time, Alter Dom looks after Linzer Hauptplatz.

  • La chiesa o “Duomo vecchio” ha alle spalle quasi 400 anni di storia, ha uno stile particolare dato dal suo bianco puro accompagnato da piccoli decori d’orati. A parte lo splendido organo che non ho avuto l’opportunità di sentire una cos a be mi ha colpito particolarmente sono gli stalli in legno del presbiterio. PS: il leggio al centro della stanza è un po’ fastidioso dato che ci sono andato addosso e quasi lo facevo cadere.

  • Wunderschöne Kirche mit imposanten Fenstern und einer spannenden Geschichte. Für Linz Touristen ein absoluter Pflichtbesuch. Hier kann außerdem eine Eremiten Erfahrung gebucht werden. Einer der schönsten Kirchen Mitteleuropas

  • Diese schöne Barockkirche sollte man unbedingt anschauen. Die Baumeister haben eine grandiose Arbeit geleistet und es gibt deshalb viel zu sehen. Diese Kirche wurde früher auch als Ignatiuskirche bezeichnet da sie dem Heiligen Ignatius von Loyola gewidmet ist. Herausragend sind der Altar, das Chorgestühl, die Kanzel und die Brucknerorgel.
