Overview

This late Gothic church was erected in 1856-79 as a reminder of the failed attempt to assassinate Emperor Franz Josef. The plans for its construction were created by Heinrich Ferstel who modelled them after medieval trends in architecture. In the baptistry stands a late Gothic statue of Count Niklas Salms who had control of the Austrian troops during the first Turkish invasion of Vienna.
