    The Marian Column in Wernstein am Inn is a statue of Mary consecrated on a pillar. It was founded by Emperor Ferdinand III. in gratitude for the rescue of the city of Vienna from a Swedish army in 1645 towards the end of the Thirty Years' War donated and built in 1646 by the stonemason and sculptor Johann Jacob Pock. It was originally erected in 1647 in Vienna Am Hof ​​opposite the Jesuit Church, but transposed in 1667 at the instigation of Emperor Leopold I and Count Georg Ludwig von Sinzendorf to Wernstein am Inn, where she stands since then on the banks of the Inn below the Wernstein Castle. In Vienna, a copy was made of bronze (see Vienna Marian column)Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mariens%C3%A4ule_(Wernstein_am_Inn)
