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.

  • Beautiful building. Tucked away in between buildings. I stumbled across it just roaming through the streets of Vienna. 
  • January 22, 2017 were (Sunday) at 8 pm at the organ concert. The Church itself is simply gorgeous inside! Oh and body acoustics-absolutely love it!

  • 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.
