Der Neue Himmel

Looking up towards heaven inside The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Linz, Austria.

When The New Cathedral was designed it was to be the largest, tallest and most majestic cathedral in Austria. The bureaucracy had decreed however that in Austria-Hungary no building was allowed to be higher than Saint Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna.

Stifled by politics and bureaucracy the spire rising above this new heaven was cut short 2 metres on the side of political correctness.
