Herz-Jesu-Kirche (Graz)

The Herz-Jesu-Kirche is the largest church in Graz, Austria. It was designed down to the last detail by architect Georg Hauberrisser and constructed from 1881 to 1887.

The church was designed in the neogothic style, with a large, high nave and under-church. The tower is 109.6 meters tall, making it the third-highest church tower in Austria. Of special note are the stained glass windows, which are some of the few extant examples of neogothic glass art. The altar area was remodeled in 1988 by Gustav Troger, just after the church's hundred-year anniversary. Except that, everything is still according to the architect's conception.
