St Peter's Church, Vienna Reviews

  • This is definitely one of the most beautiful churches in Vienna. The design, painting and figure statues are just master pieces. They are open from early morning till around 8pm, it's believe it's nicer at night when they light candles and the whole place becomes very spiritual. It's a must visit for anyone who is Vienna, a short walk from the St. Stephen Cathedral.

  • An opulent interior, we were pleased to enter and find a free classical organ recital which we stayed for. Short recitals included Pachelbel's Canon, Bartholdy's sixth sonata, and sort pieces of both Mozart and Bach. Slightly cold inside, but the magnificence of the church makes up for the shivers.

  • What a beautiful church! Atmosphere and the music match very well. Everyone inside keeps silent and being respectful. Feel so good here.

  • A truly beautiful church in the heart of Vienna. It took my breath with the magnificent ornate alter, the huge amount of life like details and the vivid colors of the paintings. To add to this unique experience is the peacefulness and spirituality you immediately feel inside, with much less tourists and no fees for entry in comparison to the nearby St. Stephan Cathedral.

  • Most famous cental cathedra i nthe Vienna . excellent achitectural monumnet i nthe cicty center. In the evenings there are mots fantastic organ concerts wit hthe whole octaves of the hearable sounds. exceptional experience worth experience.
