Votive Church in Vienna has an interesting history to it. This church was built as a result of an unsuccessful assassination attempt of Franz Joseph in 1853. Completed in 1879, this church is a twin-towered, mosaic-roofed neo-Gothic construction which looks ravishing to the lovers of art who visit it. The inside of this church looks beautiful and splendid with frescos and bulbous chandeliers. It also houses the tomb of Count NiklasSalm, one of the architects of the successful defence against the Turks in 1529, is in the Baptismal Chapel. As for the façade, it features exquisite lacy spires and sculptures. There is a museum inside the church which is worth visiting.

Votive Church, Vienna Reviews - Write a Review
I've seen many churches during my travels but this one somehow made a lasting impression on me. Unfortunately parts of the exterior were under renovation when I visited but the inside more than made up for that (free admission by the way). The quality of the light streaming through the intricately designed stained glass windows was ethereal. It painted a rainbow of glowing hues on the carved stone surfaces bringing them to life. It also seemed to be not quite as popular of an attraction as some of the other sites in Vienna, so if you're looking for a peaceful escape from the crowds, this is the place!
In my opinion the most impressive church in Vienna. Not only is it more beautiful than St Stephens cathedral, it's also better to inspect as you can fully walk around. Also: you get better chances to take photos as it's located in a park and no buildings destroy your shots. No catacombs or walking up the tower, though...
my favorite place to pray & relax. love it very much.
Although the ouside of the church is refurishing, the inner decoration and design is very impressive and special,definetly need to visit if u visit Vienna. Btw the admission fee is free
Great lookig church, currently under renovation but still a nice site to visit.
