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.

This is a feast for the eyes. It's a must see for baroque lovers. I could have stayed there the entire day just looking at the details.

This is one of the Baroque gems scattered around Innere Stadt. Located on cozy little Dr.-Ignaz Seipel-Platz. Also known as University Church, it was constructed in the 1620s upon the grounds of an earlier chapel. In the early 18th-century, Italian Jesuit brother, Andrea Pozzo, redirected the church into the masterpiece that you find today.

The exterior is attractive with two front towers, the interior is ornate, decadent and beautiful. There is much to glaze your eyes upon. Don't miss the two-dimensional illusionary dome painted by Pozzo that is remarkable to view from the right positions. Well worth 10-15 minutes viewing the interior of the Church of the Jesuits if you enjoy art, Baroque architecture and visiting historic churches.

During the 30 Years' War and the Counter-Reformation, Ferdinand I founded the church, which later became a university church. From the outside it is modest, but inside it is richly decorated with altars, gilded sculptures and twisted marble columns.

Jesuit churches are almost always going to be ornate affairs, often garishly so with an excess of guilt or over the top design. This one differs in being remarkably restrained for them and very tasteful. Beautiful, too. The ceiling, which admittedly has quite a bit of gilt, but more delicate and lighter in tone, has beautiful paintings at the center of each vaulted panel. Visually, it has a lighter, more airy and even playful feel than other Jesuit churches, too. The view down the wide center aisle to the sanctuary is particularly open and impressive. We did not have enough time to linger here and completely absorb it, but if we visit Vienna again, we will make a stop to remedy that.

The crypts were fascinating. Only open a few days every month. On sundays their amazing choir performs. We were a day early unfortunately! The church’s ‘dome’ is something to see

We visited in early march and there were very few visitors. A beautifully ornate church and similar to some of the basilicas in Rome but on a smaller scale. Well worth a visit when you are in teh centre of Vienna and very close to St Stephen's

You have to go inside here to realise how beautiful it is. It is easily overlooked, but please do not.

Go inside and look at the decor and interior. It's fantastic and one of the best sights in Vienna.

Second only to the Karlskirche as the most magnificent church in Vienna. Absolutely worth stopping by.

A lovely church you easily overlook. Magnificent interiors. Virtually empty of tourists but if you’re lucky you can catch the organist, practicing. A great find. And no admission or even request for a donation.

Vienna is full of beautiful churches, make an effort to stop into some of them while you are out and about. The Church of the Jesuits was a beautiful church full of intricate details, truly breathtaking to see. If you are in the area, stop in!
