You wouldn't think much of this unimpressive entrance that leads to the chapel of the Hopsburg Palace. We learned about the mass here from our Big Red Bus Walking Tour guide, Reinhard. It was a worship experience and the music (Mozart, Haydn) was absolutely wonderful--organ music, choir, and all. It was the highlight of our trip to Vienna.

I liked this better than the ticket I paid for with the Vienna Boys Choir! It's just not the fact that this is in a much larger church than the cramped place for the VBC, but that this was more enjoyable. Yes...I know the main purpose for both of these is to conduct a religious service, but...this one felt more... More

From the outside, this unassuming 14th century church does not appear very special. However, there is a lot of history surrounding this church, including the fact that all Hapsburg marriages took place here. Also, that the hearts of 54 Hapsburg rulers are stored in the crypt, which can be visited on Sundays after the morning service.

This was a highlight of our week-long trip to Vienna. Sunday Mass at the Augustinerkirche is accompanied by multiple musicians and a choir and soloist. It was wonderful to see people dressed in traditional Austrian dress for Sunday Mass, and the music was, pardon the pun, heavenly. At the end of the mass, the organist played for a full 10... More

This stunning church in the old city of Vienna has an interesting history as this is were Sisi was married. The cenotaph to Maria Christina of Austria by Antonia Canova was also pointed out to us by our guide.

The Augustinerkirche, as you have probably read, is the church where Sissi got married. For me however, the highlight of my visit was the cenotaph to Maria Christina of Austria, daughter of Empress Maria Theresa, by Antonio Canova. It was a chance discovery since I had no idea that such a masterpiece was "hidden" here. It was breathtaking. I couldn't... More

I was interested in seeing this church because of my interest in Empress Elisabeth, a most fascinating personality. Beautiful central aisle and nave. To walk where she walked as a 16 year old child-bride-empress was special.

The 'Augustinerkirche' in Vienna is a parish church located on Josefsplatz, next to Hofburg, the winter palace of the Habsburg dynasty. Originally built in the 14th century as the parish church of the imperial court of the Habsburgs, the harmonious Gothic interior was added in the 18th century. The official name of church and parish is St. Augustin, but it... More

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.
