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 among the few extant examples in Austria of Neogothic stained glass.The altar area was remodelled in 1988 by Gustav Troger, just after the centenary of the church.

  • We could visit the Bell Tower of the Church in a guide and were completely thrilled. The Church itself is relatively new and well maintained. The Herz-Jesu-Kirche is one of the top locations in Graz.

  • We were here on a weekday before noon, and probably that's why there was a great calm. The building is truly majestic, and the visit is certainly not a waste of time.

  • The Church of the sacred heart is the largest in Graz and is known for its high Bell Tower of over 100 metres. It is from the late 1800s, built in neo-Gothic style. Inside are interesting neo-Gothic Windows that are among the few in the area.

Where to stay in Graz

Austria’s second-largest city offers a large selection of accommodation options for every type of traveler. Outside of the city’s core in the Lend district are more affordable lodgings. Roughly a ten-minute walk to the Altstadt, this area provides an economical alternative while still keeping you close to the attractions. If you’re willing to compromise on privacy, the best prices are in private accommodations in local homes. Often this means sharing a bathroom with other guests and occasionally even the homeowners.
