St Peter's Church, Vienna Reviews
The inside of the church is really beautiful. I was there for an organ performance, which was nice too. However, there were simply too many people inside the hall. Though most of them remained relatively silent, it was still very obvious that they, and I, tourists so to speak, were there to see the beauty of the church and listen to the organ sound, but the solemnity was simply not there.
If you like Sacred Art, or just gorgeous art in general add to your list to visit the small but breath taking St Peter’s Church. The 17’s century church with a beautiful front view from Graben street, maybe doesn’t show up how beautiful is as when you get inside. The construction in Baroque style was inspired by St. Peter’s Basilica of the Vaticano in Rome according Wikipedia and you will be amazed by the view of the dome and altar really rich in details and all colors coming together in harmony. We didn’t take a guided tour, we just visited inside and enjoyed some peaceful moment because the church was not so busy as the St. Stephen's Cathedral and it’s totally worth to visit it. Eli: 5 / Serge: 4 Recommended: Yes, small but really beautiful art and church.
What an impressive ceiling! Perhaps this one is less famous then the Stephan (?), but the interior is no doubt more beautiful. I by chance listened to a pipe organ concert inside, lovely pieces from Bach and Mozart!
It's very picturesque and beautiful lots of detailed structures and paintings on the roof and the children's choir we saw really set the environment of the church.
Beautiful church, and close to other monuments (and shopping). Well worth stepping inside for a minute
