Everybody knows Mariahilferstrasse - the most important shopping-street in Vienna, BUT almost nobody knows Mariahilfer-kirche, a pilgrim-church that gave the name to that whole street. The church dates back to 1683 and got the name by the pilrim-church on Mariahilf-berg in Passau. Take a look inside that church, it was recently restored and looks really great ! When you enlarge my pics, you may see a funny detail in the facade : it seems that an angel is trying to escape with the golden stick of the bishop.
In front of Mariahilferkirche you will find a daily market with various stands offering great austrian food-specialities.

Mariahilferkirche is open daily between 08.00a.m. and 07.00p.m.
