A striking monument of Gothic architecture of the 19th century. Has the most typical elements for this style: openwork decorative patterns that create an airy image, arrow-shaped window spans and arches, high spiers of the main towers. The temple is built of white sandstone, so the building often requires renovation. The church appeared in gratitude to God from Emperor Franz Joseph.

A very beautiful cathedral. Free admission. In the middle, we were impressed by the unusually colored stained glass windows.

The Votivkirche is truly a sight to behold! Even though I only saw it from the outside, its stunning architecture left us in awe. A must-see landmark that showcases the beauty of Vienna.

The Votive Church is a must visit location.
An assassination attempt of an emperor of Austria failed. So the emperor's brother initiated a campaign to build this Church.
The gothic architecture is simply mesmerizing and the Church is imposing.

I was so sad to see all the business going inside this church. Remember the words of Jesus who said " these things away; do not make my Father's house a house of trade".

The temple was built at the end of 19th century. Just fabulous architecture. Many unusual stained glass windows in the temple. During the visit, it was partially under reconstruction. Entrance is free.
In my opinion it is the most beautiful church in Vienna. I recommend admiring it while resting in nearby Sigmund Freud park.
Votivkirche was built in the second half of the 19th century in neo-gothic style. It was meant to be a votive offering after the attempted assassination of Emperor Franz Joseph in 1853.
The church is being renovated but you can really see it’s distinct beauty. The stained glass is prayerfully astonishing.

This church maybe isn't as impressive as Stephan's, but you still can appreciate the arhitectur. But most of all enjoy the quiet and be with your thoughts.
It is amazing. We were here in the evening and there were a music band that rehearse something. It was so breathtaking to hear such beautiful voice of the girl with the echo.
Definitely worth seeing impressive architecture.
Very beautiful church with a big park in front of it. Visit it if you are around, it's free and it's worth it. Bonus: on the walls you can see the coats of arms of the Austro-Hungarian Empire provinces
