Mariahilferkirche on Mariahilferplatz in Graz is a Baroque church built in 1611 by Pietro de Pomis. It is one of the most distinctive churches in Graz and a popular tourist attraction. The original design had a triangular pediment classically used to front temples. The distinctive twin towers that dominate the church today were added in 742-1744 by Josef Hueber.
The interior of Mariahilferkirche was deliberately kept simple and serious, the most striking features being a side chapel and the image of Mary above the high altar. The church has been extensively restored in recent years.
Mariahilferkirche is attached to a Franciscan Monastery, with its convent and parish. It aims to provide constant opportunity to go to confession. The church celebrates all the high religious feasts with music by various groups from the parish, and also hosts a number of concerts and performances throughout the year.
