As the name suggests, this column was erected after the Great Plague epidemic hit Vienna in 1679. This baroque memorial catches much attention as you walk through the inner streets of Vienna. This memorial was erected as a promise by emperor Leopold if the epidemic would end. This column is headed by Holy Trinity, with kneeling emperor Leopold and angels in the bottom. Even though this column was erected as a historic response, the element of faith can still be glimpsed and noticed.

Pestsaule, Vienna Reviews - Write a Review
Yeah... It's a column. A nice one, historic. I wouldn't go to Vienna saying "hey, let's go to Vienna because the column is awesome", but while you're there and strolling around in the first district, you should see it.
Formerly a fortress and explosive magazine, now a tourist attraction, located near the city hall with an art deco themed restaurant in the basement
You can see this sculpture when you are walking in Kartner Strasse.
Very cool and intricately detailed column, like a monument. Be sure to check up on its history before going. Located in a busy shopping district.
One of the key points in Vienna. Must see. Add it to your root.
