    Votivkirche at night

    Votivkirche

    When we were there, twilight was around 10pm. Now would have been a good time to get some night-time photos. Unfortunately thanks to some hotel mix-ups and my own difficulty navigating Viennese streets, we didn't check in until 10pm, by which time I was so hungry I had to go look for dinner.

    The graceful spires of the Votive Church make it my favorite church in Vienna. Its relatively isolated location means it's less frequented by tourists than other churches. I love it. We stayed about 2 blocks away and so it was the first one I saw on my walking tour. As my luck would have it, the base of the church was undergoing renovations, like many of the attractions I visited in June :(

    The lofty interior of the Votive Church will leave you breathless. The subdued lighting makes it looks most mystical.

    Like most structures, the Votive Church is at its most ethereal when limned by the early morning light.
