    Description:

    St. Stephen’s Cathedral’s massive south tower is its highest point and a dominant feature of the Vienna skyline. Its construction lasted 65 years, from 1368 to 1433.

    There are 18 altars in the main part of the church, and more in the various chapels.

    Description:

    The church was one of the first buildings to be built on the Ringstrasse.

    The church and name derive from the attempted assassination of Emperor Franz Joseph in 1853, which he survived. The church was to be a votive offering for the rescue of Franz Joseph and “a monument of patriotism and of devotion of the people to the Imperial House.” The church was one of the first buildings to be built on the Ringstraße. Ferstel won the international competition (1855) for the Votivkirche when…

    Description:

    Fischer’s masterpiece was the Karlskirche in Vienna (begun 1715). This unparalleled work was full of iconographical significance for Emperor Charles VI, whose votive church it was. Thus, for example, the great Trajanic columns flanking the entrance bear reliefs depicting scenes from the life of St Carlo Borromeo, to whom the church is dedicated (after the plague of 1713), the themes of which are Constancy and Fortitude. The columns also symbolize both the Pillars of Hercules (i.e. the Str…

    Description:

    The arch was built in 1765 in honor of the wedding of Leopold to Maria Ludovica of Tuscany. It expresses the joy of the marriage on one side, and sadness of the unexpected death (August 18, 1765) of Francis I (Franz Stephan) on the other. Constantin Walter was the designer and Johann Baptist Hagenauer the sculptor. In 1774 Hagenauer created stucco reliefs that were carved by Balthasar Ferdinand Moll (who was also an architect) in Sterzing marble for the arch.
