Another beautiful church in Vienna, just a short walk from the Hofburg Palace ~ this one resplendently white marble. Looks very royal! Indeed, it was the site of many royal weddings, including the wedding of Archduchess Marie Louise in 1810 to Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte of France. The marble tomb of the Archduchess Marie Christine is very unique. We enjoyed this... More

There are many great churches to see in Europe and this one is worth your time to take a few photos. Beautiful architecture, and paintings.

Compared to the baroque insanity of many of the other churches in Vienna, this simple and elegant church is beautifully refreshing. The tomb of Maria Theresa's favorite daughter is haunting.

We were in Vienna for All Saint's Day and heard Mozart's Requiem with a wonderful orchestra, chorus and soloists. It was performed as part of the mass and it was the musical highlight of my trip. We also went to 2 other masses to hear the organ music. The interior was cool in November. One of the volunteers there told... More

The church is quite beautiful because of its simplicity especially when compared to other churches. We were lucky to catch a member of the choir practising on the organ and while it wasn't perfect it was a real treat! The church is incredibly peaceful and it contains the memorial to Maria Christina which is definitely worth the visit.

Augustinerkirche is a historically important churches you can visit in Vienna and makes a nice added stop when visitings the Hofburg Palace. The church architecture is gothic in style yet rather simple in its overall decor. It is the interesting history of the church and its association to the Hapsburgs that makes it a worthy place to visit. Historically, Augustinerkirche... More

We saw this church after St. Peter's Church so it just seems average. It is a nice quite church but there was no wow factor when walking into the church like some many others in Europe.

This is a nice little church, just next to the Hofburg complex. I was expecting to have a WOW effect from the famous Gothic interiors, but that did not happen. The church is lovely and has a great acoustics, but there's simply no WOW effect at all. Give it a try for a short visit or a Haydn concert.

The place to go for great church music on a Sunday morning. Masses by Mozart, Haydn, Schubert and others are sung by the St Augustin choir and accompanied by its own orchestra. There is no charge for attending. Be early as the seats fill quickly and having to stand for 1.5 hours detracts from the enjoyment.

Visited this church on the recommendation of others to hear the classical music that accompanies morning mass on Sunday, and so glad we did. Though we were only in the church during the pre mass rehearsal, the orchestra's practice performance was beautiful and the acoustics in the church were superb. On top of this the off white architecture of the... More
