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.

Make sure you check the opening hours before you come in. I went there on a Sunday afternoon around 5 p.m. and it was closed to my surprise. Otherwise, it must be a very beautiful church from the inside, worth going to Mass and/or paying a visit!
Votivkirche is an impressive, Gothic-style church with very high ceilings. Very light and airy inside, amazing interior with stained glass, beautiful and unusual, with lots of deep colors. It has very majestic and spiritual atmosphere. Usually it isn't crowded (especially when compared to St Stephan Cathedral). A must visit.
What an architectural marvel. It is one of the most impressive churches I've seen. Even if you are not religious you should go inside. It is free. Definitely reccomend seeing this church if you are in Vienna.
Lovely church, worth a stroll for the beautiful architecture.
Was great. But when we arrive, there was a show. And we counldn't visit all the church
