This is a rather unassuming parish church considering it used to serve the imperial court. It is easy to miss as the sign and door from Josefsplatz is very simple. The interior has an unadorned vaulted ceiling, the altar and chandeliers are not particularly impressive or memorable, although the (empty) Tomb of Maria Cristina designed by Canova is interesting. A good short stop if visiting the Hofburg complex, but so much better on Sundays before and/or during high mass with great sacred music. Visited around 10 am to hear choir practice for 45mins and it was a beautiful experience, even if it were just rehearsal. The music and singing were wonderful and decidedly worth the effort of coming to visit Augustinerkirche on this particular time and day. Highly recommended, and would definitely go back!
