We were astonished from this church. The Alter is very majestic. The pillars are real marble. You can take a lift up to the lower Dome and then climb stairs till the very top to have a nice view of Vienna.

The church is really beautiful and impressive to look at from the outside, but I would definitely NOT recommend paying to go inside and climbing up one of the towers. It is a total waste of time and money. Once you climb on top, despite...More

Like many churches in Europe this church has an ornate altar, impressive paintings and statues, and multi-colored marble.

One of my favorites. Massive and awe-inspiring art, sculpture, marble. Every aspect expands the imagination as you go back into time. You can attend mass and hear the massive organ. Concerts are held here as well. Avoid the "mozart clad" groups and wait for something...More

One of the youngest cathedrals of Vienna is beautifully situated near an artificial pond. Very bright and life-affirming. The Cathedral has a lift which allows to go nearly under the dome, and consider painting the walls and domes in great detail. Entrance fee.

On our first night in Vienna we attended Vivaldi's Four Seasons concert by members of Orchestra 1756.. What made this concert special is the musicians’ period instruments. A must in Vienna if you enjoy classical music. Read more about Vivaldi Four Seasons Concert at St....More

During the day you have to pay to enter this cathedral - it's no more glamorous than others in Vienna. Or choose to attend an evening Mozart recital which was excellent.

This is one of the most popular churches in Vienna. It's a good meeting point since there is an underground station with several lines. There is a wonderful neighborhood just behind with lots of restaurants not that crowded as downtown.

The fourth district combines elegant tradition with
contemporary style and relaxed living. More than a
dozen town palaces and churches such as St. Charles
Borromeo have added glamour to a neighborhood known
for its traditional retail and crafts shops, taverns,
cafés. Wieden is also home to Naschmarkt, Vienna’s
largest street market. Many bohemian types have found
their way to Wieden: meet them in trendy cafés and

We are visiting Vienna and have booked Ave Maria Koncert in June. The church looks beautiful on the photos. We are keen to visit the church. I wonder is it possible to go up the lift to see the frescoes in the dome before the concert starts? Or Do we have to come early and buy separate entrance ticket to see the church before the concert starts? Thank you, regards, ken

Sorry, but as I did not go to the concert, I do not know the procedure in that case. Have a nice visit. Even though the elevator spoils the looks the church still is worth a visit and for sure the concert will be great... More
