Maria Am Gestade, Vienna

4.5
Featured often in some of the oldest images of the city, Maria Am Gestade represents one of Vienna's oldest and most recognizable places of worship. Consecrated in 1414, the church served as a popular spot for anglers due to its proximity to the Danube River. Today, the narrow Gothic building is best known for its ornate 56 m (180 ft) tower. Step inside to observe the imposing high altar, colorful stained glass, intricately carved statues, and 15th-century reliefs on the porticos. The grandeur and beauty of the church today make it hard to believe it once served as an arsenal and stable for Napoleon during his occupation of Vienna.

  • One of vienna's most scenic and beautiful churches, it sits atop a staircase and offers a very special view from below. Also used as a stable at the time of the Napoleonic Wars it was later restored and restored to its splendour.

  • This pretty little church is in a secluded corner of downtown Vienna near a Danube loop, and you can access it from Concordia Platz by climbing a small staircase. Born in 1330, it had alternating fortunes (it went into disrepair and then was turned into a warehouse by Napoleonic troops). Narrow and high facade, with a seven-story polygonal bell tower, has a unique aisle that widens to the bottom. In addition to the various works present (Renaissance antes of the Gothic altar, organ stand of 1500), very beautiful the windows of 1400/1500 largely original
