In a city that not only has a fantastically high number of impressive buildings and indeed statues AND allows them their own space in which they can be best observed this is but one of many - which isn't to decry this church at all but rather to emphasise that as lovely as this church is there are plenty of...

One of the best ways to see Vienna is just to walk around and find hidden gems like this Jesuit Church in Vienna. There were no crowds and the subtle entrance made you wonder if you were intruding but this church is definitely worth a quick stop near the old University Buildings on Dr. Ignaz Seipel-Platz. Influenced by the early... More

This is the old Jesuit church and is very overdone but achingly beautiful in a high baroque way. It has the most wonderful ceiling paintings

You could almost miss this gem of a building - enter through gates on a sidestreet - not to be missed - highly recommended.

This chitchat is tucked away in a back street but well worth visiting to see the magnificent interior as well as the wood carving on the seats.

This is more like a museum or art gallery. Incredible works and lovely to sit quietly in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city.

Lots of very nice churches to look at in Vienna. Many have long lines and/or are crowded. Strangely this very lovely church is almost an afterthought for those looking at the palace and the Spanish riding academy. People pass it by and head for the famous cathedral. Slow down and stop inside. Its beautiful and only inhabited by the faithful

With the plethora of churches in Vienna, I was most happy to stumble on this one while out for a walk. It is exquisite, lovely, special, and very inspiring. Highly recommend.

Staying in Old University Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
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 and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
