Experience the setting of many Habsburg weddings at Augustinerkirche, where Archduchess Maria Theresa wedded Duke Francis of Lorraine, and Archduchess Marie Louise wedded Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte of France. Built in the 14th century as the parish church of the Imperial Court, the church is attached to the winter palace of the Habsburg dynasty, and is renowned for its choir and music. It includes a memorial for Maria Theresa's favorite daughter, Maria Christina, and a crypt housing the hearts of many Habsburg monarchs. The choir and musicians sing high mass at each Sunday sermon, which are open to the general public. Note that the sermon is conducted in German.

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
