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.

This is the second oldest church in Vienna. Originally built before the 1130s, it is in a beautiful gothic style and its tower is quite unique. It is run by the Redemptorist catholic order.
