The interior of this church is a baroque masterpiece. Forgetting the actual gold and marble, the painted walls are masterfully done and with seeing in their own right. For me it was more interesting than the more austere piaristenkirche up the hill. Loved it.

Krems is in the Catholic diocese of St Polten. Thus there is no bishop assigned to a seat in Krems. The so called Cathedral of the Wachau, so named because of size, is St Veit. This listing should be removed.

Well-cared-for baroque church, and the welcome we received from the congregation was terrific. A pleasure to perform here! A fIne organ and a good acoustic.

Worth stopping for a brief visit since it is in Old Town Krems and convenient. The choir, etc is quite elaborate, but otherwise the structure is average.
