We visited the Votiv Kirche and the Doom, and we were a bit disappointed about the interior of the churches. The Perterskirche took fully revanche of that. The small church is full of paintings and decorations. It doesn't look much on the outside - do go inside

When we visited it, an organ concert was playing there for earning money for repairing the organ. Very nice and well designed church. It is located in historical center of Vienna.

I had walked by this church countless times, but only recently did I go in... wow!!! The inside of Peterskirche is so intricately decorated, it is beautiful. It's not used as a church anymore, instead there are often organ concerts being played above that you can sit in and listen to. It's all free, too.

Having visited many churches and cathedrals whilst on holiday. I have to say St Peter's Church definitely stood out. Very beautiful and serene inside. The architecture and sculptures are very beautiful. Please do visit while in Vienna.

Whether you think you may be interested or not, you must go inside, it's simply beautiful. Not necessarily what you would expect.

Really beautiful and interesting church close to st Stephens and much better than The cathedral. Set off the main pedestrian street.

The Church is a little hidden, but when you come upon it, you will be amazed- very grand! They have a lot of music here, so check the schedule for your visit- you may be able to hear beautiful music in either the stunning church, or in the crypt!

Went in to this church as I had some free time-so lucky I did. There was a choir performance along with an organist that was amazing. No entry fee to the church. It's a very beautiful ornate church just off Graben.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
