Rather like most of the other churches in Vienna from the outside, the Jesuit Church certainly deserves a visit. Baroque splendour throughout!

Very special sphere with nice stony columns and good arts of sculptures.You can also find different pantings which are so meaningful.

My guide who was actually taught by Jesuit priests growing up in Vienna took me here. The Baroque style painting on the Ceilings are just amazing just as much as the church itself. Very Beautiful church!!

Completely over the top! But don't miss it! So much marble in a huge range of colours. Wonderful woodwork and a particularly fantastic pulpit. But just too much! The exterior is lovely, quite simple, giving no indication of the decor inside.

Not another church may be the cry as you walk around Vienna, but this Jesuit sect inspired interior is worth checking out.

Being educated by the Jesuits - I always look for the church when visiting a city. Well worth the walk. Organist was practicing when I was there and added to the experience.

Opulent church with an incredible painted ceiling that gives the optical illusion that it is vaulted. Look at it from different angles and you'll see what I mean.

We came along the street wondering if we were in the right place. And then we walked through the door. WOW Words cannot do it justice. You have to see this church. Better than the cathedral by far

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
