It is a nice church but it is far from spectacular, and there is nothing really interesting inside, neither there's any information in English. Don't bother, unless you have too much time

Small, simple and cozy. I had the chance to assist to a mass, but unfortunately not presided by a priest. It was registered in advance then played during the service hour. It was the first time I witnessed such a thing. It took all the spirituality and holiness of the moment away.

This is also called the church of St. John the Babtist. We walked from the opera building towards this busy area where there are many restaurants and happened to see this. This church was originally built around the year 1500. It has been modified many times.It is very beautiful and tranquil inside. One does not have to go out of... More

The relative small church of St John the Baptist,situated on the most popular,turistic,attractive area ,on Kartner Street,is a quiet,distinguish,impressive space for a moment of silence and prier.

This church is quite small and comparatively much less ornate than St. Anna's Church. It is peaceful, though, and can be a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the very nearby Kartnerstrasse. The trumpet concert held in this church was excellent. The trumpeter and the organist were both super! Music selection was excellent! If you have an urge... More

There are so many churches in Vienna that it's difficult to know which ones to visit. I only happened to notice this one as I was walking past, as it really is just another building in the pedestrianised shopping area. There was a mass going on inside when I visited and so my visit was confined to admiring the exterior... More

A nice neat relatively bijou church compared to many, many others to be found in this remarkable city of impressive buildings. Regretably there are too many others that are better for me to recommend a visit here .... unless you live here !

If you walk down Kartnerstrasse from St. Stephen`s towards the Opera House, midway through the street on your left you will find the Maltese Church. A quaint little church which is worth a stop and having a look inside. It`s not a very big church but very welcoming. A calm and quite place compared to the bustling and busy street... More

This small church has a fascinating history and follows the Knights of malta and their good works for the poor and sick. Really tranquil church in a busy street There is an old hotel round the corner in annagrassa called Mailberg hof that has the maltese cross on the door and is apparently owned by the Knights hospilairs.

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.
