Maria am Gestade is one of my favorite places in Vienna. Located in a quiet area . From there very quickly you can reach the Platz Am Hof . The church is small, but in contrast, is among the most beautiful in the city.

I was several times in Vienna and always this church was closed - so now it was opened. I entered and was surprised when I saw what is inside - obviously it was renovated, but there is no info (inside or outside) in English (only German). The place is really amazing and it enters in my must see list for next visits there. The place is located at the very end of the historical Vienna center and difficult to find without electronic help :) but it pays for the efforts.

Very pretty church in a nice, out of the way location. I liked that it was smaller and quiet. It was a rainy day so that may have been why the crowds were so thin.

St. Mary's by the banks is a unique and beautiful Gothic Church. For a Chruch so small, it is amazing that they took the effort to beautify it as they did. Really worth a visit. And check out Lola's Tapas bar while you are in the area!

Much lovelier than the larger, more garish churches elsewhere in the city. While the guidebooks slightly overstate how narrow this tiny church really is, this long elegant church feels calming and meditative.
