  • This is a lovely church located on the Am Hof. At the moment, we were only able to explore its wonderful Baroque façade, as it was still being renovated and restored.  more »
  • An excellent example of the Baroque style, both inside and out. The wall paintings are beautiful and plentiful. Unfortunately the church was full of tourists.  more »

  • Kirche am Hof is translated into English as the Church of the Nine Choirs of Angles. Sounds incredibly awesome just by the name. It’s a centrepiece on Am Hof and a significant historical site. Chiefly, it is the church where a royal herald declared the end of the Holy Roman Empire, which had been ruled by the Habsburgs. The dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire eventually resulted in the birth of the German Empire and the Austrian empire. At that point, Emperor Franz I of Austria begin his rule as Emperor of the Austrian Empire. It’s all politics to be honest.
  • Built the Baroque square structure at the Court in the place of the Roman coins chapel at the end of the 14th century as a monastery church of the Carmelites and in the form of today's Baroque church with a monumental western façade with an early entrance hall, wings and a wide tight balconies from the middle of the 17th century. At the Court, place of major historical events, location of the Court was Babenberger(-Herzöge) among other tournaments during the stay of the Holy Roman Emperor Friedrich I Barbarossa in Vienna (1189), as well as the contest between the minstrels Walther von Vogelweide and Reinmar took place in the ancient part of the Roman military camp Vindobona and in the high middle ages. After the relocation of the sovereigns in the Swiss wing of the Hofburg, went over to the place at the end of the 13th century on the Prince's coin and was from 1340 to a marketplace. 1515, venue of the double wedding of the Habsburgs with the Jagiellonian initiated by Emperor Maximilian I was at the Court. During the German revolution of 1848 was stormed the place, this arsenal and war Minister count by Latour on a lantern hung. in 1806, a Herald of Emperor Franz II. from the Loggia of the Church announced the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire of the German nation. Other attractions on the square are the Marian column donated at the end of the thirty years war by Emperor Ferdinand III., that with the balconies and Church-associated Baroque Collaltopalais, the Urbanihaus from the 1630s, the civil Armory built in the middle of the 16th century, with a Baroque façade of the show with triangular Pediment, the narrow House dating from the 16th century Renaissance house the mid-Baroque Märkleinsche gold-plated House and a late historical house with a cannon ball from the second siege on the portal.
