      Domkirche Details

      The Domkirche or Graz Cathedral is one of the citys finest churches. Externally and internally, it provides its visitors with an intensive and admirable viewing experience. Its treasures inside are from as early as the 15th century. There is history within this structure. The objects are not only fascinating, but they tell tales about the city and its people.The exterior of the Domkirche bears a faded and damaged fresco on its south wall. It tells the story of the various plagues that could and did strike the city of Graz. Here, you can see depictions of plagues, locusts and the Turks. Inside, there is a colored marble high altar and Crucifixion by Konrad Laib (1457). Of particular interest is the choir stalls. At the entrance to the choir, on either side are two 15th century reliquary chests. Originally the boxes were hope or dower chests for the daughter of Ludovico II of Mantua, Paola Gonzaga. Be sure to examine the carvings of the allegories of Death, Love and other cheerful topics. You can also visit the tomb of Count Cobenzl by Raphael Donner.
