As described by previous reviewers this was a wonderful musical experience that I highly recommend. It was a mesmerizing experience. Arrive early (30 minutes) to hear the choir and orchestra practice and to get a seat.

In the overall scheme of things this church, to be found adjacent to the Albertina museum, can be easily missed - just keep a look out for the iconic and idiosyncratic spire.make the effort to see inside as it's quite marvillous .... but then again this could be said for large numbers of edifices in this glorious city. Worth making... More

As others have described, the Sunday 11 AM mass (lasts ~1.5 hours) is stunning. The acoustics, the orchestra, the choir, the altar . . . an extraordinary experience. Please don't think of this as "free"; both the church and the musical program need your support, so plan accordingly and dress respectfully.

We arrived quite early for the 11 AM mass. If you arrived by 10:45 you could still find a seat. Those who arrived right at 11 were being seated but in an area quite close to the altar - facing the choir. Found it beautiful. I don't speak German but I do know Swedish and English so I had no...

Apart from the elegant beauty of the church, it is the religious service that makes it really special. Almost every Sunday they have a mass supported by a great choir and orchestra. At the entrance you can by CDs with this divine music.

We had heard about the music venue that accompanied the high mass at this church in the Hofburg area. Glad that we got there a half hour before it began as even then, we were on the sidelines. Eventually, every seat was taken. The ceremony is moving whatever your faith. The choir up above the rear pews was just outstanding.... More

Went in on a Sunday evening. When visiting and taking photos, was mindful not to disturb those who were already praying inside. Felt so peaceful and calm.

Special place - beautiful masses with music every Sunday at 11:00 a.m. Former nuptial church of the habsburg dynasty and has a chapel with silver urns containing their heasrt and tongues!

I went to this church to hear the concert (free of charge) that is held every sunday during mass. The environment, the music, the feeling, all were exquisite. The church hosts some historical tombs and a renewed cript with Augsburg remains. I'd come back anytime.

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.
