A beautiful church to visit, and if you can be there at 3:00 you get treated to a free organ concert as well.

St-Peter's church is not very particular inside. The exterior is pretty, but the interior is average and could have a particular interest for some peoples only (churches lovers or person who know some particular facts on this church). For a medium tourist like me, the visit of this church did not spend a lot of my time (I took a... More

This is a massive church. Was interesting to see, but there were just so many people that you don't really get a great feel for it.

Not as big as St. Stephan but still gorgeous inside and still large. Does not get as much foot travel as St stephan so don't have to worry about over crowding. On side streets but close to the main center easy to walk too. Bunch of shops around it as well

Give St. Stephans a quick look...climb the tower then high-tail it to St. Peters to see a truly impressive small Catholic Church.

Anyone who goes to Europe will attest to the fact that after awhile you can't see any more churches! However, with this viewpoint we went into; Saint Peter's. This particular church should not be missed. Although it looks tiny on the outside it is actually very large inside and not one bit of space as been wasted. It is stunningly... More

This is a must visit site in Vienna. The building is beautiful and very easy to access as part of a walking tour.

The interior is so beautiful. Please take time to enjoy, but keep in mind it's a place of worship. Located very close to Stephensdome, it's located where previously Charlemagne built.

The religious community of Saint Peter is the oldest of Leuven. It was founded in 986, but the first church burned down so a new, much bigger Roman one, was build. The architecture is a typical example of "Branbant" art. The architects wanted to build three towers. The highest would be 170 meters, but when a hight of 50 meters... More

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.
