The painting in this church are amazing, the layout and the amount of work that must have gone in to its creation. It is well worth a visit and easy to find.

Amazingly ornate church with incredible marble pillars and beautiful wood pews. There is a crypt below the church which you can enter from the main entrance area. The church and crypt are free to enter. Activity time: 10-20 mins.

The church is quite nice, especially the inside. The columns inside are quite unique. The church is located not far from Stephansplatz and worth taking a look if visiting Wien.

In the area of St. Stephens, this church is beautiful on the inside. Check out the ceiling when you walk in. It looks like a dome, but it is just a paint affect. Then walk to the front of the church and look back. Now...More

Vienna has many churches and each has a different atmosphere. We found the Jesuit church to be the most ornate and elaborate. compared to the Dominikanerkirche near by and especially when compared to the church of the Teutonic order in the same part of town.

We stumbled across this church while on the way to somewhere else - certainly glad we did! It's well decorated on the inside, although some will find it a bit gaudy. Inside the cathedral, the artist has painted the inner roof to LOOK like it's...More

Magic. The setting is gorgeous; the congregation welcoming and the music divine. We heard Mozart's mass in c minor. Thrilling.

One of the most visited churches in Vienna, the exterior of this building has been kept to a minimal with a facade that employs twin towers, whereas it features an opulent interior with a host of allegorical frescoes. It is over two floors with illusional...More

Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly
turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to
legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at
Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque
façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for
a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse,
Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and
Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories
