This church of unconventional appearance, however, no longer serves its original purpose.

To build a church on difficult sloping terrain was a truly challenging task but the architects M. Kühne and H. Fanta together with builder A. Hübner managed to find a solution. The construction started in 1908 – just in time for the celebrations of sixty years of the rule of Emperor Franz Joseph I – and therefore the church was named Jubilee. The works finished in 1911 and because the Capuchin order from Tyrol took it over, a small monastery was also added to the building. Mainly the appearance of the church is unconventional as it is in the Neo-Baroque style with Art Nouveau elements.
