Consecrated in 1707 this is a stunningly beautiful creation in High Baroque style. A vast ornate facade on the square is a perfect introduction for what's to come inside. Standing at the entrance the effect is awe inspiring, with the immense space in white. Marvellous...More

Was built originally for the Benedictine University. It has been restored. It is one of the most celebrated baroque churches in Austria.

Admission is free but you can leave a small donation. The taking of photos is permitted. Second only to the cathedral in size and built in majestic marble, you can’t miss this church in the old town. Worth stopping for quick peek as its minimalist...More

Well worth a look if passing. Not a top must see however. Still nice. Interesting from the outside as well as inside. Take about 15-20 mins to walk around.

Relatively bare inside but two side altars are worth admiring. There are wooden benches along the sides for resting - none of the typical pews in most other churches.

This is a beautiful baroque church, which looks very majestic from the outside. The inside is very elegant due to its classical design. It is very spacious overall, so it gives you a very refreshing feeling.

This massive church is on the corner of the Universitatplaz. On entering you see that there are no standard row of pews as expected. It is very pristine and minimalist. No gilt and few paintings,it creates a very serene space.

One of the purest examples of baroque architecture in Austria is often overlooked despite the fact it is second only to the cathedral in size, and has an impressive convex façade. The main hall has white walls without paintings - sparse use of sculptures and...More
