Very interesting church, not so wealthy decorated, but with many elements and details that can be observed.

This church was the parish church of the court and the Habsburgian family. Many weddings were celebrated there. In a chapel the hearts of many members of the archiducal and imperial family are buried. The most moving monument is the sarcophag of archiduchess Christine. It is a masterpiece of Antonio Canova.

This is a beautiful Sunday mass, both the rehearsal beforehand - which started before we got there at 10am - and the service itself. Much has been written about the beauty of this church before so I will keep my review to some handy tips. Seats in winter do fill up - all were taken by the time the mass... More

I was able to enjoy 2 masses, particularly the Schubert with orchestra, organ, choir and soloists. To listen to this music in such a venue is a - Godsend?

The church was located between Hofburg and Albertina. It was not that impressive from outside and it was quiet and nice inside. Learnt that the 11 am Mass on Sundays was particularly impressive with nice concert musics and would be interesting for all visitors.

The church is not commercialized nor is it frequented by many tourists. It is next to the Hofburg but few people go in. Thus, it is a place for quiet and prayer.

Was lucky to be in Vienna and attend mass on the Sunday that they celebrated the name sake St. Augustine. So, it was a special celebration. The 11:00 mass was accompanied by organ, choir and orchestra. Whether this or any Sunday mass, arrive early to get a seat. The mass was a bit long, but worth it, as the music... More

This is a beautiful church, well worth a visit. It is historic and dates back to the siege of Vienna. It's simplicity is a contrast to the baroque splendor one otherwise associates with Vienna.

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.

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.
