Church set in an elevated position that is very tall and long relative to its width. These characteristics enhance the effect of the magnificent alter set in front of 3 intense stain glass windows. Slightly of the main tourist route but definitely worth a visit

It is not easy to find this church, it is almost hidden. Much in Vienna is so official. There are memories of the emporers. So even in most of the churches, for example in the Votiv Kirche, where emporers and different organisations have dicided which...More

Worth trying to find (not really that hard)and not too far from other attractions. The steeple top is a very unique sight. The odd shaped interior is a story unto itself. There is some real beauty to the interior.

Maria am Gestade is a Gothic style church in Vienna's city center, traditionally used by sailors on the Danube river. Today the church is in the hands of the Redemptorist order. Services are held regularly.

This church is not mentioned in many guides and not many guided tours lead past it, but it's a hidden gem in the first district. It seems rather unremarkable, but don't be fooled. When in the area you should certainly have a look at it.

This is a great little church that is worth a visiting. It's located centrally and is free to enter.

Beautiful church hidden in the streets of Vienna. Suddenly in front of us while taking a morning walk. Gothic architecture and full of history. I loved it.
