The first church I walked into when I visited the city. It is abundantly clear that the people were expressing their love of their God by making an incredibly beautiful church in His honor.

Located in a small square, a short walk from Stephansplatz stands the unassuming exterior of the Jesuit Church. With a typical baroque façade, this church needs to be seen to be believed. Most people surely gasp when entering for the first time, the rich and...More

This free to enter church appears to be more highly decorated than the cathedral which you have to pay for. If you want to visit a church then come here

The exterior of the church was plain however the interior was grand. Definitely a must see. As this is a church, it's free to enter. During the evenings, there is also someone playing the organ and I through it added to the atmosphere.

This church is in the baroque style and is wonderful to look at. The walls columns and ceiling have all been painted crafted and styled to make those who attend a wonderful experience even before any service starts. Remember your camera, a must have.

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
