The Augustinerkirche, as you have probably read, is the church where Sissi got married. For me however, the highlight of my visit was the cenotaph to Maria Christina of Austria, daughter of Empress Maria Theresa, by Antonio Canova. It was a chance discovery since I had no idea that such a masterpiece was "hidden" here. It was breathtaking. I couldn't... More

I was interested in seeing this church because of my interest in Empress Elisabeth, a most fascinating personality. Beautiful central aisle and nave. To walk where she walked as a 16 year old child-bride-empress was special.

The 'Augustinerkirche' in Vienna is a parish church located on Josefsplatz, next to Hofburg, the winter palace of the Habsburg dynasty. Originally built in the 14th century as the parish church of the imperial court of the Habsburgs, the harmonious Gothic interior was added in the 18th century. The official name of church and parish is St. Augustin, but it... More

Saint Augustines Church is a beautiful church. When you step inside you see and feel the gothic architecture and the care and attention that goes into maintaining this marvelous landmark church.

This gorgeous gothic church was the place of Hapsburg weddings and hearts! There is a chapel that holds all there hearts (While the church is free you gotta pay to see that).

I happened to walk by the Augustinerkirche on a Sunday morning. The door was propped open a bit. I wandered in. Actually, I my interest was piqued by the beautiful music wafting out the door. The church was full! There was standing room only. Expecting only to stay for a few minutes, stand I did...until the end of the service.... More

Augustinerkirche was the parish church of the Hapsburgs and they celebrated a lot of weddings over here. The church has beautiful art and architecture and is definitely worth a visit. It is not as rich and opulent as the other churches but a lot of detail 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.

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.
