sunday mass is a poignant occasion for music lovers

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.

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.

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.
