#5 of 58 in Historic Sites in Vienna
Architectural Building Religious Site
The Baroque exterior of St. Peter's Church conceals architectural treasures inside. The interior of this Roman Catholic church features exquisite golden stucco, pews adorned with cherubic heads, and striking gold and silver statues. Built between 1701 and 1733, the church's ornate construction includes the work of many artists. Once inside, notice the frescoes in the turreted dome. Around the dome, examine depictions of the four evangelists and four fathers of the church. Enjoy the detailing on the gilded ornate pulpit and the golden representation of the Holy Trinity above.

  • The Church is amazing and beautiful stained-glass Windows, which in the Sun look beautiful. In the basement of the concert took place, paid from 30-50 euros, but I believe that these were the very money well spent. Recommend

  • We stayed near the St. Peter's Church and ended up visiting it several times during our 3 day stay in Vienna. When you walk inside, the sheer beauty of the baroque architecture takes your breath away....  more »
  • The decoration of that church is simply breathtaking and definite must-see if you're in the area. Make sure you take your camera. The church is located very near the St. Stephen's Cathedral.  more »

  • A beautiful church outside but mostly inside. It worth to stay few minutes to admire the pictures and sculptures. Recommended.
  • Tucked in a enclave off Graben is the Church of St Peter’s. This used to be the original Roman encampment in Vienna and a Roman church once stood on this ground. The church had been rebuilt several times through the ages, from Romanesque to medieval times and the current Baroque style is actually inspired by that famous cathedral in Rome that bears in the same name. There is that unmistakable dome that mimics the one at the Vatican. Since Vienna is pretty compact, especially in the historical centre, the church can only be seen clearly when I stood directly in front of it from Graben.
  • Magnificent baroque church that I found during walking in the city center. Even there were many visitors just came in to see, it's rather quiet and peaceful inside.
  • Beautiful! Both inside & out. A must see- but please respectful.
  • A very beautiful church in the heart of the city. Has a great interior and paintings.

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.
