Went to mass on Sunday and the orchestra and choir were performing Beethoven's Requiem Mass. The acoustics, the orchestra and the choir were breathtaking. I wasn't very familiar with this mass but it is now one of my favorites. The soloists' voices soared through the air and filled the massive room. A wonderful way to start the day.

Not far from the cathedral is this lovely, intimate church that is well worth a special trip. It is a truly beautiful place. We went to St. Stephans for Sunday service but our friends attended mass here with organ and choir and they said it was splendid.

Beautiful place, so close and easy to visit. If you see only outside you never can imagine how much it is precious. We stayed there for 15 minutes and we did see everything.

The jesuit church embraces you with an over the top art deco style that is refreshingly stunning. The midnight mass on Christmas eve was incredible.

The Church of the Jesuits (Universitatskirche) is one of the most beautiful churches in Vienna and one of our personal favourites to visit within the historic city centre area. The church was built in the early 17th century upon the site of an early chapel. However, the Baroque appearance which dominates its interior was added by Andrea Pozzo in 1703... More

This church is a must see in Vienna. The interior is more lovely than many of the larger cathedrals. We visited early Sunday morning and the choir was practicing for a Mozart concert later that day. It was one of the highlights of our visit.

The church is tucked away within Dr. Ignaz Seipel-Platz, which might be a bit tricky to find (just ask the locals how to reach the Universitätskirche). The interior of the church is quite opulent with beautiful marble pillars and stunning gilded ceiling with a... More

I consider the Church of the Jesuits one of the most beautiful churches in Vienna. The interior has different colors of marble and this makes the church very attractive. The large paintings are also very good.
