Pestsaule - Review
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
Pretty cool, had a panic attack around midnight here. Best place to have one so far! 5/5
The Vienna Plague Column is a Baroque monument located in the center of Vienna, being one of the most important monuments in the city. The column was inaugurated in 1693, ten years after the liberation of Vienna from the Ottoman siege, and was erected in the spirit of divine mercy to remove the plague from the city.
It's a nice historical place to see in the city center of Vienna and enjoy dining or simply having a drink around the restaurants and cafes ....
An impressive piece of art in the center of Vienna. This baroque monument was built to commemorate the end of the great plague in Vienna in 1679, and shows emperor Leopold kneeling and praying to God. This is one of the most beautiful sculptures and definitely worth a visit.
Very beautiful and quite special. Good mix of history and and interesting individual background. Strong recommendation.
