Maria am Gestade is a Gothic style church in Vienna's city center, traditionally used by sailors on the Danube river. Today the church is in the hands of the Redemptorist order. Services are held regularly.

Beautiful church hidden in the streets of Vienna. Suddenly in front of us while taking a morning walk. Gothic architecture and full of history. I loved it.
