Please visit this church, preferably on a Sunday morning at 11:00 AM. You will not be disappointed. Religious preference irrelevant at this moment in time. Listened to a magnificent Schubert Mass performed by full orchestra and choir. Quite a memorable experience. The acoustics were stunning.

We attended the 11:00 am Sunday Mass at this church. We are not very religious, but when you hear the full choir and full orchestra in this acoustically perfect space - Oh. My. God. Literally. When you hear pieces by Schubert, Haydn, etc. in a space that was around when they were and a place where those pieces were written... More

It is a small church, but wonderful. There is a Canova cenotaph from marmor. From outside you even don't remark, how beautiful this church is. It is from the 14. century, but was rebuilt several time.

This church is very beautiful and another must do in Vienna. It is near all of the other tourist attractions, so it is worth paying a short visit to get the flavor of the beautiful church in Vienna.

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!

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
