This church is situated on a side street near the large St Stevan cathedral, so maybe that's why no one was there when we visited it, but its interior is as spectacular as any I've see in Europe (and I've see a lot). It is...More

This is a beautiful, small, baroque church in Vienna. It is a bit hidden but in a central location. The fake marble is very well done.

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.

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
