  • This small church on the border of the old town is definitely worth visiting when we visited we were guys trying some classical music, so I guess you play also.

  • The massive building on Sunday could not get inside, from the outside have a lot of other pastel décor and taste different and the blackened masonry appearance. Better in limited time to put inside, he checked the time. A good and close to the River, followed by a walk.

  • Once she stood on the shore of the Danube, this has become, but over the centuries, moved or adjusted. The cherry stands today on a collection, which is accessible from the front steps or from the rear over the slightly uphill going Judengasse. The Church itself can be visited only rarely from the inside. But since this is a church from the middle ages, worth a visit anyway.

  • Einfach nur schön.
  • Unexpected church in the middle of Vienna. We loved it as it cuts from the rest of the ornate architecture and the Gothic churches. It certainly has an atmosphere of its own. Careful though, you need to go up a few steps to get there so it's not wheelchair or stroller friendly.
  • Atmosphere of the ancient period is well preserved, small and cozy
  • Beautifully simple!
  • Along with a church on the site of the present St. Peter's Church, the oldest church in Vienna in the Romanesque and Gothic style with the oldest glass paintings. Founded may have been the Ruprechtskirche 740, already in the 13th century, it was considered very old. In the immediate area of the Church, there are traces of settlement from the 10th century, a nucleus of medieval Vienna, which was a relatively loose control with smaller farms and two solid churches in the 10th and 11th century. The Tower floors with the Romanesque double-glazed Windows and the walls of the nave of the 1161 or 1200 first mentioned Church date from the 12th century Worth seeing are the Interior in the form of a wooden-roofed Romanesque Hall with a Gothic choir and invites the smoking area of the "Kuchldragoners" to linger and enjoy the very special historical ambiance in the summer the statue on the outer wall of St. Ruprecht in the first half of the 19th century next to the Church.
