The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

    Beautiful Baroque
    A lovely church in the Baroque style serves often as a venue for classical music performances. It has interesting history, in the 15th century a pilgrim house, then pilgrim hospital stood in its place. In the 18th century, Empress Maria Theresa. herself attended a ceremony here.

    Beautiful Baroque interior, popular venue for evening concerts
    There are a handful of beautiful Baroque churches scattered around Innere Stadt including Annakirche (St. Anne's Church) on Annagasse. Historically, a chapel has been located here since 1320. A Gothic style church was constructed in 1518. However, around 1630, the Jesuits began a series of renovations that over the centuries would fully transform St. Anna's into the Baroque masterpiece that you can see today. The remarkable ceiling frescos, the work Austrian painter Daniel Gran have always been something I've found particularly impressive within the church. In addition to viewing the ornate interior, St. Anne's Church is also a popular venue to attend evening concerts which are usually held here a few evenings each week. Concert schedule can be viewed and tickets can be purchased online if interested. The acoustics within the church are very good and attending a concert here can be a highlight to stays in Vienna if you enjoy historic churches and Baroque concerts.

    Impressive
    The venue was perfect for the concert. With a small quartet of two violins, a viola and violoncello the acoustics of the church did them justice. The choice of compositions from Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven couldn’t have been better. The fact that some of the instruments were made in the early 1700’s was also impressive. Well worth the time and money.

As can be deducted from the relatively few reviews of St. Anna's Church (Annakirche) on TripAdvisor, this one is not well-known or frequented by visitors. Such a pity that most people miss it, especially considering it's located relatively near the city center. Perhaps it's because the church is very non-descript from the outside? But, step inside and, whoaaa... !!! The church is not so large but the beautiful baroque interior is fabulous. The ceiling frescoes are also fantastic. No entry fee either!

Tucked down a side street in Vienna St. Anne's was a special visit. Absolutely beautiful interior. Take the time to find the church you will be glad you did.

We attended a really nice concert at Saint Anna's Church, with works by Mozart & Beethoven, specifically for string quartets; the players were really learned ones and gave the exact mood for both composers. Only when the concert was over we realized how uncomfortable the pews were. We recomend an early arrival at the church as attenders will seat freely.

Sought tickets to a smallish classical concert as opposed to the ‘dinner and a show’ options around town and was so pleased. The price was right, musicians talented, just the right length.

The show started at 8 and we arrived ten minutes late so we sat in the back and it was mostly full. There were a few children that didn’t much want to be there, but they were swiftly brought to the back near us to sit quietly.

It wasn’t a terribly warm day so the inside of the church was bearable. I don’t recommend it though if it’s an especially hot day.

We visited St. Anna’s church on Easter evening for a classical concert. I really enjoyed the concert in such a small, intimate venue and the acoustics were great. The church itself was gorgeous and I spent about half of the concert looking around at all the paintings on the walls and ceilings. If classical music is of interest to you (the concert was only an hour) I would recommend trying to grab a ticket to one during your stay. If not, consider dropping by the church while out and about to admire the interior.

We saw a string quartet play here, the acoustics were a bit muted but we enjoyed the program. Great location to walk around before or after the show.
