Comments:
Sign number 6a from the "Vienna - the city introduces itself" series of signs, an initiative established in 1956 as part of the Vienna Festival, which shows significant places in the city. The serial number is displayed at the bottom of the sign.
Above the sign are 4 flags of Austria, which is a hallmark of the project, and the possibility of recognizing it from a distance Click for a larger image

The letters HB that appear after the name of the church, mean Helvetische Bekenntnis - Helvetic Confession, when referring to the Reformed Church.
The church was built by the architect Gottlieb Nigelli in 1783
