Cathedral of Gurk is part of the Tentative list of Austria in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

The Cathedral of Gurk is a three-nave basilica dating from the 12th century. The interior design was changed in the following centuries and the adjacent monastery buildings date from the Baroque period, but the cathedral has retained its Romanesque character. Most remarkable is the westwork with its 60-metre-high towers and the “hundred-pillars” crypt, the oldest part of the cathedral.
