14th century gothic, with baroque organ covered in cherubs, wonderful chandelier, and a pryramidal tomb entrance in marble, with life-size marble people entering, to the memory of Maria Christina, the favourite daughter of Marie Theresa & Leopoldo 2nd. But her actual remains are in the Kaisergruft.

At Augustins is in Josefplatz next to the Hofburg Palace and was built in the 14th century as the parish Church for the Habsburgs. As you might expect it is impressive on the inside but not at all impressive externally. The Gothic interior was added in the 18th century. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

This is an easy one as it is free, and located next to everything else that you are likely going to see. It is a charming little church, though of note, what makes it special is the fact that all of the Hapsburg human hearts are removed and kept here. You cannot even remotely close to the high alter to... More

The façade doesn´t look like a church at all, however, this was the Hofburg, and thus imperial chapel/church. It has an interesting main altar as well as a large memorial to one of the Habsburgers. But otherwise it is sparingly decorated. Do not forget to look around and admire the organ.

You wouldn't think much of this unimpressive entrance that leads to the chapel of the Hopsburg Palace. We learned about the mass here from our Big Red Bus Walking Tour guide, Reinhard. It was a worship experience and the music (Mozart, Haydn) was absolutely wonderful--organ music, choir, and all. It was the highlight of our trip to Vienna.

I liked this better than the ticket I paid for with the Vienna Boys Choir! It's just not the fact that this is in a much larger church than the cramped place for the VBC, but that this was more enjoyable. Yes...I know the main purpose for both of these is to conduct a religious service, but...this one felt more... More

From the outside, this unassuming 14th century church does not appear very special. However, there is a lot of history surrounding this church, including the fact that all Hapsburg marriages took place here. Also, that the hearts of 54 Hapsburg rulers are stored in the crypt, which can be visited on Sundays after the morning service.

This was a highlight of our week-long trip to Vienna. Sunday Mass at the Augustinerkirche is accompanied by multiple musicians and a choir and soloist. It was wonderful to see people dressed in traditional Austrian dress for Sunday Mass, and the music was, pardon the pun, heavenly. At the end of the mass, the organist played for a full 10... More

This stunning church in the old city of Vienna has an interesting history as this is were Sisi was married. The cenotaph to Maria Christina of Austria by Antonia Canova was also pointed out to us by our guide.

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.
