Located a short walk from the Cathedral. Definitely worth a visit. Admission is free but you can leave a small donation. Photos are allowed. The twin towers and façade are majestic but relatively plain. In contrast the interior is breath-taking. The highlight here is the...More

I've never seen such beauty in a little church like this. As a catholic I appreciated the silence and the painting along with the architecture. Don't miss it!

Really glad we walked to find this church. It was huge from the outside and looked stunning however you would never expect the intricate work that you find inside. So so beautiful. We were also lucky enough to arrive here as the organ was playing!...More

We stumbled upon this church - it looks simple and plain on the outside and it's a whole different world when you step inside. Luxurious, amazingly embellished, majestic. We got there just before it closes so we didn't have time to check out the crypt;...More

close to St Stephan's, it is a wonder devoid of the throng of tourists. Visit the vaults in the basement

We got shown this on a walking tour of the city. It is one of the most stunning churches we were shown on our tour of the city. It was fascinating to think the seemingly domed ceiling had actually been painted onto a flat surface.

Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly
turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to
legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at
Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque
façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for
a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse,
Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and
Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories
