“Elisabethinenkirche - Small Baroque style church”

Elisabethinenkirche
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Elisabethinenkirche (St. Elisabeth's Church) is a baroque style church, built in the early 18th century, found in the 3rd district (Landstrasse), just beyond the old city walls that surrounded what is known as the 1st district (Innere Stradt).

Originally built as a small church in 1709, the church was later expanded into a monastery and long served as a hospital as well. Today you can see the ornate baroque church and the interesting chapel with a chained statue of Christ at Elisabethinenkirche.

The chained Christ statue is based on a local legend of an accused, kneeling to pray at St. Elisabeth's Church, begging God to prove his innocence. Immediately, his chains and shackles broke proving to the authorities that the man was innocent of the crimes he had been accused of committing.

Overall, Elisabethinenkirche is an ok visit to make and the Chained Christ Statue is interesting. We would suggest stopping by if you are planning to walk out to the Hundertwasserhaus and Kunsthaus Wien attractions which are not far away. You can comfortably visit in 15 minutes.

Tip: Elisabethinenkirche is located on Hauptstrasse, just past the station where you catch the City Airport Train (CAT) to and from the airport.
