This is - according to me - one of the most beautiful churches in Vienna, in gothic style. The interior is full of light, and there are several works of art worth seeing. The work of art that impressed me most was the cenotaph of...More

We were fortunate to have found out about the Sunday Mass with choir by our tour guide on Saturday. The church itself is beautiful and the Mass was lovely with the Augustinerkirche choir singing. Free entrance, but get there early to get a seat.

If you read through 1000+ postings I have on TA, you'll see a lot include churches. When visiting this I thought, well it's a nice church, but what I didn't realize is this (and I'm quoting Wikipedia): In 1634, the Augustinerkirche became the parish church...More

Worth a quick peek. Admission is free but you can leave a small donation. Photos are allowed. Part of the sprawling Hofburg between the Albertinaplatz and Josephplatz, it wasn’t easy to find the entrance but we followed the arrows and got there in the end....More

The church has a very pretty interior. It is a 5 minute walk from the Vienna State Opera House, the Museum of Natural History Vienna, the Botanical Gardens (Schmetterlinghaus), and many other destinations. Definitely worth a visit since you'll most likely be in that area...More

Nothing from the outside -breathtaking inside. A church used for Hapsburg family weddings and burials. One of the major sculptural pieces is a tomb stripped of all religious references and replaced by freemasonry ones. See if you can decode it. Well worth your visit.

Augustinerkirche is the Imperial Church of the Hapsburg. Its history reaches back to the 14h-century, the church was the location of royal weddings...More

In my opinion the St. Augustin organ is the one of the finest in Europe. The tradition of great music is unparalled in the City of Vienna. After hearing the Vienna Choirboys feeble attempt at singing a Schubert mass at the neighboring Hofburg Chapel one...More
