Augustinerkirche, Vienna

(4.4/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful interior with dramatic sculpture and alter. A church worth a visit.
  • Not worth the 7euro entrance fee but definitely worth the visit....stunning library.
  • Beautiful mass and choir!
  • Donated to the captive Duke Friedrich III. of beauty for the mendicant order of Augustinian hermits in the 1330s and integrated in the building complex of the Hofburg Gothic Hall church with power and ribbed vault and the Court parish church from 1634 until 1918 as well as wedding Church and heart crypt of the Habsburgs. Among other things, the tombstone of the "Vampire Hunter" Gerard van Swieten (the first physician and Court Librarian of Empress Maria Theresa, which served as a model for Bram Stokers Van Helsing) and the Loretto Chapel overlooking the Herzgrüfterl are worth seeing in the Interior.
