An intriguing church to find in the city centre for those with an interest in his historical matters is Ruprechtskirche (St. Rupert's Church), which is presently considered the oldest church in Vienna. St. Rupert's Church was built during the 9th century after the fall and...More

Salt has been one of the most important commodities for most of humankind because of its ability to cure and store food. In the 700s, an enterprising Catholic Saint Rupert baptised the local King of Bavaria and made a deal to take over the old...More

We went looking for this little Church as it is touted as the oldest Church in Vienna. The day we found it hidden amongst the taller buildings, there was a small choir practicing, we didn’t go in as we didn’t want to disturb them. We...More

It was great yo be welcomed discretely into the beautiful gem of a church. The stained glass windows are strumming and the simplicity is a change from the baroque we've seen elsewhere. Don't miss it!

This is the oldest church in Vienna. In the Centre of town near Schwedenplatz and yet hidden. Found this gem at the end of the Vienna Free Walking Tour. I was somewhat reluctant to review this less touristy sight but it is important to share...More

This church is worth the visit from the city center, most notably because of the absence of tourists. However, there seems to be a horse and buggy route running nearby which is worth avoiding. The church is very old and finding the entrance and exit...More

I attended a wonderful early music concert in this church: the perfect venue for this sort of music. The church is quite small. In the summer they have regular concerts of small ensembles. The church is an interesting example of Romanesque.

This is a very simple but extremely beautiful old church – possibly the oldest in Vienna. A church in some form has stood on this site since 740 although much that you see now, such as the aisle, is from the 11th century. Much of...More

It is a lovely, romanesque church at the border of the old town. It's really worth to take a few steps downstairs and have a look at it from the North, as it looks much more spectacular from there than when seen from the South.

Sorry, we spent so much time admiring the architecture, gardens and walking loads that by dinner time we were tired. There will be another visit for music and everything else the truly wonderful city has to offer
