Beautiful baroque church

It is really a precious baroque church where one hasn't eyes enough to absorb it all. It is so close to the Kaertner strasse. One should not miss it.

A beautiful old church tucked away in the first district. Well worth taking a few minutes to visit - stunning architecture.

I highly recommend visiting St. Peters. And try to find a time when they are having a concert in the crypt - it was just amazing.

St. Stephen's may be the big cathedral but we much preferred St. Paul's....very bright and ornate. Visited twice and happened in on the organist's practice. Sat and enjoyed the beauty of the interior while he played beautiful music...all free!

Great church. In my opinion, the St. Peter's Church's pipe organ sounds even better that St. Stephen's Cathedral's pipe organ

I love this church....you will come across it and due to its plain facade you not be motivated to go in..but if you do...you will find a beautiful serene and inspiring interior....this is a special place to visit so please make the effort

The church is rather plain and white on the outside but once inside you are blown away by the baroque interior. It is full of statues, gilding, large organ and stained glass windows. A lovely collection of decorations , complete over blown baroque. Quite stunning.

Exquisitely beautiful, especially at Christmas. Very peaceful place to sit and reflect, or just pop in and admire the ornate decor. Personally found it to be more impressive than St Stephans.

I visited here in January 2016. There was a mass in progress so I could not get too close. The altar was ornate and there were many paintings and works of art around the church. I think it is definitely worth a quick visit.

The church is built on the location of the oldest church building from the early mediaeval times. Its name is first mentioned in 1137 and the new building started in 1701 inspired by Rome’s Basilica of St. Peter. It was the first domed building in Vienna. Its interior is very rich and impressive, so enter the church and enjoy the... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
