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.

Easy to miss but definitely worth the visit. The gold and grey are a stark contrast to other churches in Vienna. This was where many monarchs were married and buried.

We just were walking and found this place and it was also beautiful inside. I don't think there is a bad church around there. It was neat tho to see the Maria Christina sight and read about her

We were anticipating a tour of the palace so much that we almost missed this impressive little church. Nothing like St. Stephens Cathedral in terms of grandeur, but still a lovely and contemplative place to visit. Should be visited!

Located on Josepfsplatz, this church may be hard to find as it doesn't look like a church. We encountered it along Augustinerstrasse coming from the Kaisergruft. Done in white plaster, the exterior looked like a 3-4 storey state building - quite inconspicuous for an imperial church. The tall white tower was the key to finding the entry door. Coming from...

Traveling around europe has made me hate churches but this one was surprisingly cute. Small and tucked away. If you get a chance to go in the day you'll hear the organs play. It's gothic style if beautiful too.

This small and lovely church, part of the Hofburg (the Hapsburg winter palace), was built in the 14th century and modernized in the Gothic style in the 18th century. Many important weddings occurred there, such as the wedding of Franz Joseph and Elizabeth. In seeking out this historical site, we found that they also have an important musical tradition.

This was not on my radar screen but saw it located within the palace complex. The private chapel of the Hapsburgs. Worth a visit (free). "Small" (by the nearby massive church comparisons). Site of burial of hearts of numerous kings/emperors. Impressive church artwork

St Augustinerkirche was more of a church for the Hapsburg royal family. There are some graves and memorials of the Hapsburg inside. The outside is rather plain compared to other churches but the inside is beautiful. The church has a lot of Hapsburg history attached to it and is very interesting.

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.
