St. Peter's Church, Vienna

4.7
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.

  • We stumbled across this chuch after a long morning of sightseeing in sub-zero temperatures, taking the opportunity for a bit of a respite from the cold. We were very glad we had and the extraordinary ...  more »
  • This beautiful baroque church is best when visited during an organ concert. It really brings the place to life and the organ sound is amazing (and I don't even like organ music that much).  more »
  • A beautiful cathedral close to one our favorite pedestrian shopping streets. They have evening concerts.  more »

  • The church is one of a kind.. worth a visit! We happened to visit during a practice session. Wow... amazing one of a kind performance! Will gave to visit again for a concert!
  • This is definitely one of the most beautiful churches in Vienna. The design, painting and figure statues are just master pieces. They are open from early morning till around 8pm, it's believe it's nicer at night when they light candles and the whole place becomes very spiritual. It's a must visit for anyone who is Vienna, a short walk from the St. Stephen Cathedral.
  • An opulent interior, we were pleased to enter and find a free classical organ recital which we stayed for. Short recitals included Pachelbel's Canon, Bartholdy's sixth sonata, and sort pieces of both Mozart and Bach. Slightly cold inside, but the magnificence of the church makes up for the shivers.
  • What a beautiful church! Atmosphere and the music match very well. Everyone inside keeps silent and being respectful. Feel so good here.
  • A truly beautiful church in the heart of Vienna. It took my breath with the magnificent ornate alter, the huge amount of life like details and the vivid colors of the paintings. To add to this unique experience is the peacefulness and spirituality you immediately feel inside, with much less tourists and no fees for entry in comparison to the nearby St. Stephan Cathedral.
