If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Hoffburg complex it is an ideal hideaway. The main gothic altar is stunning

Not only is this church very beautiful, but it was so interesting to see first-hand where the Hapsburgs worshipped, were married, etc. It's right next to the Hofburg so it's definitely worth a visit!

We were passing this church during Easter Weekend and heard a choir singing. The sound was amazing and we decided to go inside. Very impressive church. This 14th-century church was built within the Hofburg complex to serve as the parish church for the imperial court....More

This is another great church to spend some time just exploring. This is where numerous weddings of the old imperial family took place - Empress Maria Theresia married Franz Stefan von Lothringen in 1736, Emperor Franz Joseph I married “Sisi” in 1854, and even the...More

This is an easy one as it is free, and located next to everything else that you are likely going to see. It is a charming little church, though of note, what makes it special is the fact that all of the Hapsburg human hearts...More

The façade doesn´t look like a church at all, however, this was the Hofburg, and thus imperial chapel/church. It has an interesting main altar as well as a large memorial to one of the Habsburgers. But otherwise it is sparingly decorated. Do not forget to...More

Why do those who rebuff God go into a place made to worship Him in? The beauty is the best those artists could give and they praise God. We would all do well to emulate them. Did you find a way to give of yourself??

Where is the entrance to the church? We would like to go to Mass there but can't find it on the map! Is it on the St.Stephens side of the palace or where? I want to allow time to find it and I can't walk without a tri-walker.
