This was on a Lonely Planet walking tour of the inner city and we were struck by the quiteness of this wonderful church. It has some must see spiralling pillars and an underground burial chamber. All are free to visit.

The church was built between 1623 and 1627 on the site of an earlier chapel and was built at the time when the Jesuits were the dominant force behind the Counter-Reformation. They had power and this building was about proving it and its broad high...More

The Church of the Jesuits has a very beautiful and colourful interior. There were no tourists when we visited and so it was very quiet !

This church is situated on a side street near the large St Stevan cathedral, so maybe that's why no one was there when we visited it, but its interior is as spectacular as any I've see in Europe (and I've see a lot). It is...More

Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly
turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to
legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at
Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque
façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for
a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse,
Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and
Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories
