The building of the New Cathedral in Linz is also known as the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. The first stone was laid in 1862, and in 1924 Bishop Johannes Maria Gföllner consecrated the finished building as the Cathedral of the Virgin Mary. It is the largest Cathedral in Austria. Yes, it is bigger than St. Stephan in Vienna, only its tower is two metres lower, because no building was allowed to be higher than St. Stephan's.
