  • The square "Am Hof" should not be missed during a visit to Vienna-and then, of course, also to see the Marian Column. Especially in beautiful sunshine you can also take very interesting photos here.

  • Nice place at Christmas
  • The Mariensäule (Marian Column) is an interesting monument to see at Am Hof square. This monument was ordered by Emperor Ferdinand III at the end of the 30 year war and stands in front of Kirche Am Hof. It is a nice monument to view from up close as well as from the opposite side of the square where you can see it with the church in he background. This Marian monument was built between 1664-67 by German sculptor Balthasar Herold. It is a single black pillar, topped by a statue of the Virgin Mary. Interestingly, the decorative pillar is surrounded by four cherubs battling adversary creatures which represent heresy, hunger, plague and war. Have a look before or after visiting Kirche Am Hof when sightseeing in this area of Vienna.
