Free entrance. Visit Duration: 30 minutes. The Jesuit Church – also known as University Church – is a marvellous baroque expression of Christian faith. The very modeste exterior will leave you in awe once you enter the church. The interior is remarkably opulent with marble...More

This is one of the prettiest churches I've ever seen. The inside is just so amazing! Pink marble and gold make the most amazing sights. But the paintings are breathtaking!

Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly
turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to
legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at
Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque
façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for
a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse,
Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and
Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories
