“Preferred it to Stephansdom....”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

It's only a short walk between these two places of worship, so visit both and make up your own mind! They are both awe inspiring and worth visiting.

“The Living Room of God”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

After seeing St. Stephan's Cathedral, the outside of this chjrch seemed modest. I am so glad I took the opportunity to go insde. Gold painted sculptures with beautiful paintings, drew me in. I was told that the church is referred to as the Living Room of God.

“Beautiful Church”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

The church is located straight ahead of St. Stephans Cathedral.
You can see it from a distance as its Green Dome is very visible from the entry of the main road.
We would not have a tour as it was a Sunday and the Mass was going on, but we did enter the Church and loved the beautiful sculptures and paintings inside.
The road in front of it leads to the Historic Centre of Vienna and there are a lot of shopping and eating places there :)

“Impressive and peaceful”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

The places of worship are really a source of inspiration and this one is no different. Excellent architecture and very majestic from inside. One can not stop marvelling the glass carving inside.

What really did not go well with me was a huge, huge hoarding of Samsung covering entire façade of the church. That was robbing this marvellous structure of its whole majesty.

“Great”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Another amazing sight in Vienna. Go at 3:00 on week days to hear the free Organ concert. I believe it is in the Baroque style. I nice comparison to the other gothic style church.
