While nothing special on the outside, this church needs to be appreciated for its interior. To me the interior was more impressive than Stephansdom. Well worth a visit if religious art is your cup of tea.

The interior is remarkably opulent with beautiful marble pillars, gilding and a number of wonderful ceiling frescoes.

I never enter any of the churches I see but this one looked quite nice from outside. The problem is, there are so many beautiful churches in Vienna, you are spoillt for choice, and this is possible not one of the most beautiful

So gloriously decorated in a little square in the midst of narrow streets .... well worth a visit - the outside is very plain but inside the decoration is stunning.

This church while looking very simple on the exterior is WOW on the inside. It is decorated in beautiful Baroque style. There is an large instillation in the center aisle which I would have liked to have an explanation or description for. Otherwise the church is quite beautiful !

This is a relativ small church with beautiful barock inside. The marble decorations are amazing. Go and try to have a concert it is even more inviting at the evening.

We discovered this church in the old university during a walking tour of Vienna. We would never have seen it if not for the tour. While small compared to some churches, it is completed inside with very ornate finishes, including some amazing "manufactured" marble that is quite remarkable. It is worth a short detour to visit the church.

Have visited this church several times, just to see the amazing interior. This trip I got to hear a Mozart mass performed there--such a fitting setting with all the "marble," gilt and paintings. Well worth it.

Neighborhood Profile
Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse, Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
