(4.7/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
The Church of the Teutonic Order, also known as the Church of Saint Elisabeth of Hungary, is the mother church of the Teutonic Order, a German-based Roman Catholic religious order formed at the end of the 12th century. Located in Vienna, Austria, near the Stephansdom, it is the current seat of the Grand Master of the Order.ChurchThis Gothic church was built in the 14th century (1326–1375) and consecrated to St. Elisabeth of Hungary. Some of the stucco work was performed by the Italian artists Simone Allio in 1697 and Girolamo Alfieri in 1700. The church was remodelled in Baroque style in 1720 (probably) by the architect Anton Erhard Martinelli, while Count Guido von Starhemberg was the commander of the Order. Alfieri worked again in this church in the period 1720–1725, as well as the sculptor Giovanni Antonio Canevale. However, the church has retained some of its Gothic origins, such as pointed arches in the windows.The walls are decorated with rows of numerous armorial bearings of the Order of Teutonic Knights and several commemorative stones, such as the tombstone of Siegfried Grafen Sarau with relief work by Giovanni Stanetti and of bailiff Jobst von Wetzhausen (1524) by Loy Hering.

  • This church is situated in secret. From the outside, she is hardly to perceive, hides it so a wonderful treasure trove. An insider's tip is the Church at best, especially since in the usual guidebooks, little attention is paid you.

  • Close to St. Stephen's Cathedral. Can't see is a beautiful courtyard. It is invisible like a church building. Emblem of many was posted on the wall on the left side of the main altar. Custom decorated Knight's badge from it. Was I ever entered the Church and was a little different atmosphere.

  • The Teutonic Church and the Treasury of the German order hid among the streets of the old town. They are not immediately able to find, but the search worth my time. A very interesting collection of va...  more »
