The Minoriten Church is a Catholic church built in French Gothic style and is located at the center of Vienna’s historic inner city, in the first district and just a few minutes away from the Hofburg. The so-called Minorites were Franciscans who founded the Minorite Monastery in Vienna in 1224. The church building was completed in 1350, as one of the first Gothic churches in Eastern Austria. Ever since then, the Minorite Church is considered as one of the most beautiful churches in Vienna.
Since 1784, the church has been owned by the Italian Congregation and has grown to become the cultural and social centre of the Italian Catholic community of Vienna. It is often referred to as the Italian National Church of Mary of the Snows.
The striking saddle roof of the church rises above the silhouette of Vienna's city centre and its "shot down“ tower is another striking characteristic of the building, dating back from the times of the Austro-Turkish wars. Since then, some massive alterations have taken place, the last major alteration being in the years around 1900, when the neo-Gothic annexes were built in which the Italian Congregation is housed.
The Minorite Church in Vienna is one of the oldest and most artistically valuable churches in the city and definitely provides a unique venue for classical concerts – both acoustically and architecturally.
