Formerly called Italian National Church, Minoritenkriche is built in Gothic style and is located in Vienna's city center only a few steps away from the headquarters of the government. For me the Mosaic of the Last Supper is the church's highlight, a life-sized copy of Leonardo da Vincis's Last Supper.

Stumbled into this church while roaming the streets of Vienna. A few interesting views, including a replica of the last supper. Free to visit, so consider dropping in if in the area. Nothing worth modifying your itinerary for.

This is a beautiful church with a very large and humbling interior. The two most beautiful things about this church are the carvings in the doors to the church and the stone replica of The Last Supper. Its a quick visit and well worth it.

A definite must see. This was great no one in there so no crowds. Take change to turn on lights. Our guide took us and was very impressed.

maybe one of those places that are not well positioned on the touristic track. it is between all main touristic points, so a short stop by will be enough.

I visited this church on April 7th in the afternoon and I was there alone. If you are tired of Barroque churches come here and enjoy some Gothic architecture. There´s a great Last Supper mosaic!

Minoritenkirche, Vienna, houses the replica of Leonardo da Vinci's "Last Supper". This is a life-size, early 19th century piece created by Italian mosaicist, Giacomo Raffaelli. It weighs over 20 tonnes and is truly magnificent... each tiny stone was chosen for its colour and it is astonishing to see it and realize it is a mosaic! Quite beautiful and a must... More

This is very interesting church... One from older in Vienna with Gothic style. Have nice reproduction on "The Last Supper" ordered by Napoleon. Perfect location at heart of city.

This is a fourteenth century Franciscan Order church with a strangely shaped tower. This tower was built in octagonal shape. Then during the Turkish siege it's bell-tower was destroyed and it has stood like that since 1529. Inside the vast church you can see a life sized copy of Leonardo Da Vinci's Last Supper. There is a very interesting tale... More

You can't really compare this to St. Stephen's cathedral. It's not as grand, but that is its charm. It's a small and charming church where people come to pray and feel closer to God. It doesn't draw in lots of tourists, and that makes it much more quiet and peaceful. Don't forget to visit the little chapel left of the... More

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.
