This is a must see attraction in Vienna, the sculptures here are magnificent and well worth seeing, during our recent visit here we booked a concert to be held in this church by members of the Vienna Concert Orchestra, the violin soloist was the prize winning Russian violinist Alexandra Tirsu, and including two arrias from the Russian soprano Natalia Stepanska,...

The dome to this wonderful church is breathtaking, and there is an elevator up to the dome so that one can see the frescoes close up. The church itself is also spectacular. Don't miss this church, just outside the old city loop. There are also daily concerts in the evenings in a very intimate and cozy, yet respectful setting.

This is the first church we visited while in Vienna. The altar and artwork throughout the church were amazing. We paid to go to the top of the dome, but did not realize that the stairs were in scaffolding. I am not normally afraid of heights, but I have to admit, I was a little nervous as we got higher....

A mightilly impressive church with some outstanding architectural elements to it - yet another almost iconic building, one of many to be found in this city, which should be enjoyed. Stand or sit a while and consider it and enjoy it.

We were skeptical of the 8 euro entry fee, but it turned out to be more than worth it. This is the first time we were ever able to take an elevator and then stairs up into a church's very dome--not only are the views spectacular, but you get to be inches away from the ceiling frescoes. The visit offered... More

View from the top not worth the effort; the last bit very strenuous and view obstructed by wire mesh.

A beautiful baroque church with clear light so you can see all details. Much more impressive when compared to the overcrowded and dark St Stephen´s Cathedral. Check when regular concerts are being performed. For euro 38 pp we booked a 60 minutes concert Mozart Requiem in the evening at 8.15 pm. Please note that there are no toilets in the... More
