As I wandered down the aisle, turned to my right, and there was Canova's magnificent monument to Archduchess Maria Christina. Similar to the one to him in the Venician Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari. In this Imperial Church next to the Hofbung, Maria Theresa was married. So too was Napoleon married to his 2nd wife the Archduchess Maria... More

This church was a surprise, both in the elegant simplicity of its interior, and the limited number of people visiting which permitted a proper viewing and reflection which the crowds and problems at St Stephens (by comparison did not permit).

The church is small and very old. But the real treasure lies under the church. For 7 euro, you can take a crypt tour where you'll see mummies lying in coffins, wood coffins that are elaborately painted and you can wind your way between all of them in the small, dark crypt. If you are claustrophobic - don't take the... More

This church is attached to the Hofburg palace. For a palace church it is small. That aside its interior is understated but is very beautiful. The church is renowned for its choir and music and their CDs are available for purchase. The choir/musicians sing a solemn high mass each sunday which the general public can access.If you attend it is... More

This church is a little gem hidden within Vienna. The church is located in the same area as St-Stephens Cathedral and is very quaint and cute. It does not have the dramatic architecture that some of the other churches in Vienna, but worth well visiting!

If you're feeling a little over churches, then don't stop at this one. At minimum, poke your head in and savour the architecture and design. What disappointed me was the lack of history. I knew it had many stories from the Hapsburgs, but nothing seemed available. I ended up paying €1 to listen to 3 minutes of dull info from... More

A moving and wonderful mass. Sadly my German is non existent so I was unable to follow the sermon but the choir was marvelous! and we could easily follow the service. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Must visit this church after Stephansdom and St. Peter. Gorgeous architecture as well. One thing cannot miss if you have one sunday in Vienna. Please attend the Sundays mass at 11:00 am. Better come at 10:30 am as many people will come. Attended the mass on October 5, 2014 at 11:00 am. Free entrance. Enjoyed the choir and orchestra very... More

This is my very favorite Vienna experience. Sunday morning musical mass should not be missed. There is a choir and orchestra, and they are brilliant. They have many CD recordings available for sale; I bought several, and they are great. Be sure to give them a donation as you exit. The church itself is beautiful, particularly Maria Christina's tomb.

Built in the Gothic style, there are any interesting features of this cathedral including the memorial for Maria Teresa's favorite daughter Maria Christina as well as the seating that was built above the sides of the altar. We had a private tour with Peter (wienguide tours) where we spent time hearing great stories about different parts of this cathedral. Our... More
