Votivkirche, Vienna

4.4
Featuring two slim spires visible from a great distance, Votivkirche serves as one of Vienna's major Gothic landmarks, known for its stained-glass windows. Commissioned immediately after a failed assassination attempt on the life of Emperor Franz Joseph in 1853, the church was finally finished nearly two decades later. Consecrated on the silver anniversary of the emperor's marriage, the structure sits across from the site of the assassination attempt. The exterior features an intricate facade embellished with sculptures, while inside you can see an eye-catching altar decorated with glass mosaics and alabaster columns.

  • It's not accessible right now because of the construction, but its pair of Gothic-looking towers are quite pretty. It has much less attention than Stephansdom, if you want a quieter atmosphere.
  • The most beautiful church in Vienna, beats Stephansdom. Don't forget to study the gargoyles and see if you can find the bishop that's being sat on. 😊
