Votivkirche : Michelin's recommendations

The church was commissioned by Maximilian to commemorate the escape of his brother Franz-Josef after an assassination attempt in 1853. The openwork steeples of the Votivkirche or Votive Church are 99m high. Inspired by Cologne Cathedral, it was built in Gothic style, adhering to historicist principles applied to buildings near the Ring. Inside are two Renaissance works, the recumbent figure of Count Salm who resisted Suleyman the Magnificent in 1529 and the Antwerp Altar (1520).
