We entered the church in the late afternoon. We were alone in the church. It doesn't appear to be a church from the outside; there is a glass door to a foyer that leads to the entrance of the church. Inside, the only word that...More

While not the most ornate or spectacular, it was the church of the royalty. It is where they went for services and where they were married. Perhaps the most famous is the wedding of Sisi and the Emporer. We stopped by and happened to be...More

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Hoffburg complex it is an ideal hideaway. The main gothic altar is stunning

We were passing this church during Easter Weekend and heard a choir singing. The sound was amazing and we decided to go inside. Very impressive church. This 14th-century church was built within the Hofburg complex to serve as the parish church for the imperial court....More
