Discovering St. Peter’s Church, Vienna

Where : St. Peter's Church - Vienna

Discovering St. Peter's Church

If you like Sacred Art, or perhaps simply gorgeous art in general - then make sure to add (the small but breathtaking) St Peter’s Church!

It's a 17th century church with a beautiful front view from Graben street.  Perhaps the exterior of the building isn't indicative of the beauty inside.  So don't let that stop you from entering !

More on the church

According to our search on Wikipedia, the church is built in a Baroque style, which was inspired by St. Peter’s Basilica of the Vatican in Rome.   If you're an art or architectural enthusiast, the view of the dome and altar will amaze you.  It oozes with rich details and colours, which all come together in harmony.

Do we recommend ?

Yes.  It's a small but really beautiful church.  We didn’t take a guided tour, but you might think differently.  We enjoyed a quick visit with some peaceful moment since it wasn't busy at the time.
