The church was completely reconstructed in Gothic Style following the orders of Duke Rudolph IV of Habsburg. The South Tower was completed in 1443 and the North one in 1579. The Baroque altarpieces were added in the 18th century. After the World War II the Cathedral was reconstructed after being devastated by a fire.
