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...

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. Throughout... More

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.

Pure magnifying gothic church. We were lucky to listen to the classic music from an orchestra playing up above.

Eleven am Mass very popular , arrive early- full orchestra and choir every Sunday, amazing acoustics and sound. If you love music and ambiance, even if you are not Christian I would recommend it every time.

We went in here while just passing as it looked quite an interesting church. It was quiet and very peaceful. There is a beautiful monument on the right hand side which was worth looking at.

I visited this lovely church on April 7th around 11am. My family and I were completely alone. It was quite austere and dull compared to the dazzling barroque churches of Vienna. Be that as it may it was quiet and spiritual. Notable among the church's monuments is the memorial to Archduchess Maria Christina of Austria sculpted by Antonio Canova, in... More

Dull, boring, inspiring, beautiful. This church, once the the court chapel of the Hapsburgs, the scene of the wedding of Napolean and Marie Louise, is not as lavish as one woud assume for a royal church. Perhaps, one of the most notable aspects is the powerful sculpture by Antonio Canova of the tomb of Maria Christina, Maria Theresa's favorite daughter.... More

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.
