As the largest, not tallest, cathedral on Austria, it’s stunning. Few minutes from the main square, a must see. We happened to walk in with a wedding in progress.

This does everything a good Cathedral should do and more. The stained glass windows are as good as any I have seen and the rest of the interior has an understated majesty. Well worth a visit.

The highlight of this church is definitely the stained glass windows -- some are very traditional and some are very modern. An interesting fact we learned is that you can spend the weekend in the bell tower for meditation and contemplation!

For Cathedral afficianados this is a must visit if only for perhaps seeing the very best of 19th Century Gothic construction - yes this is a relatively new cathedral built on a grand scale in very traditional manner using 19th century technology rather than medieval...More

This is a really huge church, quite dark inside but well worth the visit. We came here from our river cruise. It's a short walk from the ship to many churches including this one.

I'll answer my own question- According to the Dom staff, you can only climb the spire as part of the tour, and that tour has limited runs. Contact domcenter@dioezese-linz.at for additional details.
