Jesuit Church - Review
Better known as the University church, the Church of Jesuits holds a lot of importance to the history of Vienna. Built between 1623 and 1627, this church was influenced and inspired by early Baroque principles. However, it was later remodelled by Andrea Pozzo between 1703 and 1705. Since this church was merged with the University of Vienna’s philosophy and theology section, it became popular as University church itself. Today, you can admire its beautiful architecture and find some spiritual solace in its interiors.

Jesuit Church, Vienna Reviews
Went just to have a look on a Friday - beautiful paintings adorn the ceilings. Would receive mend a quick look in if nearby.
I was shocked to find this Church far more beautiful and awesome then St. Stephen's Church. Hidden in a side street only 15 minutes away and not many know about it. Excellent pipe organ there and some concerts are performed there. A must see to really appreciate such beauty👍👍👍
Absolutely beautiful and magnificent church, so rich in its decoration, beautiful marble and wooden benches! Stunning...
The Church of the Jesuits is a Baroque gem and one of my very favourite churches to visit in Vienna. Situated on the backstreet Dr.-Ignaz-Seipel-Platz, this is a wonderful place to include in your sightseeing plan if you are a fan of architecture, art and historic churches. The church facade is fashioned in Baroque but is somewhat simple compared to the interior which has a way of enamouring those who enter. Designed by Italian Baroque master Andrea Pozzo in the early 18th century, there is much to catch the eye's attention as you scan the colourful and heavily gilded marble columns of the main hall, Spend some time to enjoy the intricate altar, the ornate pulput and side chapel bays of the main hall. A major highlight of the Jesuit Church is the ceiling fresco which includes a two-dimensional illusionary dome painting by Pozzo. This is a fine example of painting optical illusions for which he was known for. If you step into the side bays on either side of the hall, notice the small ceiling holes, each accompanied with a unique optical illusion scene to complement Pozzo's ceiling masterpiece. Give the Church of the Jesuits 10-15 minutes to view and enjoy and then continue onward with other intended sightseeing. If you enjoy Baroque churches, there are other fine examples within the historic city centre, including the nearby Dominican Church, The Franciscan Church, St. Peter's and St. Charles churches.
Beautiful church, especially nice that it's quiet and not touristy.
