The church is gorgeous. You can see it on your own. If you can time it yo go hear an organ concert you should. It is free. It is special. Do be kind a leave a few euros per person for the experience.

Even if you are not religious you will be blown away by the opulence of St Peters Church. They hold music recitals very reasonable. As it was Janis the alter and Crib were prepared for Christmas so it was quite magical. We woke each morning...More

Loved visiting this Church in the run up to Christmas. The candlelight and trees made it extra special. A must when visiting Vienna.

We never saw the inside of the church itself, but instead heard a string quartet play in the basement/crypt area. It was overheated and crowded - the chairs were jammed all along a narrow walkway amongst displays and tables, and it was just a bizarre...More

Compared to the cathedral round the corner this is much quieter and smaller and much more worth a quick visit. Stunning interior. And also without the hustle and bustle of tourists crammed in.

Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral)
and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’

When we were there (an early evening, around 18:00) it was just the organ, no other musical instruments, and a chorus. It was wonderful !
