“So beautiful!”
Reviewed September 21, 2011

If you are at St. Stephens Cathedral, you should really pop in to see St. Peter’s Church, it is within view of the Cathedral and is really so much prettier inside (IMO) than St. Stephens. Decorated in Baroque with frescos and carved wood from the 18th Century. It is very beautiful, well worth a visit.

“Another Vienna Gem”
Reviewed September 16, 2011

I have visited Vienna many times in the past 5 years and I am always amazed at finding new things as I walk this charming city. On my last visit I experienced my latest WOW - St Peters Church located on Petersplatz! You can see the scaffolding from the main shopping promenade but do not let that detract you from venturing inside to witness an amazing display of artwork, paintings and Baroque architecture. My favorite was the cupola and the coat of arms. There are so many unique and interesting fresco's your head will be spinning.

Ιt’s located near Grabben, so surely you will pass several times near the building during your stay in the city.
Located in a narrow street, it’s difficult to have an overall view of the exterior, but what worth most is the interior.
Take a detour and enter the church - baroque decoration, marbles, colours, wonderful fresco in the dome - great. It reminded me very much the St. Nicholas Church in Prague.
Admission is free, as is the afternoon concert.
On our last visit (March 2011) the church was maintained, but only externally. Access inside was allowed.

“Beautiful Cathedral; Wonderful Concert”
Reviewed August 1, 2011

Don't miss the afternoon FREE concerts at St Peter's Cathedral - 3:00 PM every weekday. It is a one-half hour organ recital that resonates through the cathedral. We enjoyed at chance to sit down, view a beautiful cathedral, and listen to wonderful music. Donations are appreciated.
