Unlike the Stephansdom Kirke this beautiful, ornate church is not crowded and does not charge for you to get up close to the altar. From the outside it seems like any ordinary church but inside is absolutely beautiful. It is not full which makes it...More

Worth seeking out the church for its optical illusion - the painting inside gives the impression of a dome but it is just a clever fresco - a peaceful church on a quiet square

One of the favourite churches I visited in Vienna, it's rather unassuming on the outside, but the interior is very beautiful. Highly recommended if you're in the area.

This church is right up there on my unofficial list of Most Ornate Churches I’ve Ever Visited. Tons of marble, gold, and frescoes inside. Tons. It can almost be a little overwhelming to go inside since the church’s facade, while nice, gives you no impressions...More

Located a short walk from the Cathedral. Definitely worth a visit. Admission is free but you can leave a small donation. Photos are allowed. The twin towers and façade are majestic but relatively plain. In contrast the interior is breath-taking. The highlight here is the...More

I've never seen such beauty in a little church like this. As a catholic I appreciated the silence and the painting along with the architecture. Don't miss it!

Really glad we walked to find this church. It was huge from the outside and looked stunning however you would never expect the intricate work that you find inside. So so beautiful. We were also lucky enough to arrive here as the organ was playing!...More

Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly
turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to
legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at
Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque
façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for
a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse,
Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and
Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories
