In the area you have this church of St.Peter. Close by you have Stephansdom. You have Graben, you have KärnterStrasse. In short this is an area to use some time. visit St.Peter's - it is a nice interior. Watering holes just outside, as well as...More

There was a free organ recital (about 30 minutes long) with a varied program (Buxtehude, Bach and some 20th century music)--a great little break in the afternoon. Donations are accepted but not required (they are said to benefit organ maintenance). The church is gorgeous and...More

St. Peter's is small and compact, there hardly seems room for worshippers between the surrounding chapels so very intimate. The range of marbles and granites used to build this place is astounding and they are beautifully used. Because it is so small, try to be...More

While St. Stephen's Cathedral is one of the more know attractions, the St. Peter's Church, just off the Graben is a breathtaking work of baroque architecture. This small church is almost a mini version of St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican. It's worth catching the mass...More

We were lucky enough to sing a mass in this beautiful church on a choir trip to Vienna. This church is slightly more out of the way but the interior is even more impressive and ornate than that of St Stephen's. Definitely recommend visiting.

We visited this church immediately after visiting St. Stephen's. The two are interesting to see in succession in order to contrast the Gothic St. Stephen's with the Baroque St. Peter's. I must say both are busy cathedrals, style-wise, but St. Peter's was built to convey...More

Takes a bit of tracking down. Externally the church is not that imposing,but the baroque sculptures and roof murals inside are overwhelming. The organ playing in the dimly lit church interiors , full of incense give a surreal,almost spooky feeling. A well recommended visit as...More

When we were there (an early evening, around 18:00) it was just the organ, no other musical instruments, and a chorus. It was wonderful !
