  • This place is just simply amazing and beautiful. A concert was taking place during our visit and the acoustics of the place make it heavenly. 
  • You can easily walk past this location and miss it. However you will regret not going in. The architecture (gothic) is awesome. 
  • This church looks very dull from the outside but entering through the doors you are amazed at the interior and you can watch services while they are being conducted

  • The inside of this church is very beautiful. If you sign onto its wifi site you can get an amazing detailed account of all if it's figures and paintings. Your own private tour.
  • Beautiful church hidden between the buildings in the center of Vienna! I saw the cuppula from afar and walked until I found the entire church!
  • Not as big as the nearby St. Stephen's Cathedral, but inspiring in its own right - enter and be amazed. With a beautiful turreted dome and gold pretty much everywhere you look, definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
  • Probably a 4 really, but as one of the only free things to see in Vienna, it gets the extra star. Small and compact, this church is really a gem.
  • Yes, it's magnificent, but I've been there many times and it's always overly crowded with tourists taking pictures in all directions. Too stressful for me.
