Church
“Visiting the famous St. Stephen's Cathedral is a must, if you want to see a monument of the baroque. It was build in 1137 and has gone through a lot of difficulties. Some parts were demolished and there has been also a fire blight. If you catch up the opening hours, you might probably see the catacombs as well.”

“Just next to the university of Vienna is this beautiful jewel, a church often mistaken for the famous St.Stephens Cathedral due to it's similar structure. Yet smaller and more fragile, it is a must visit. Both inside and outside are spectacular sights. Highly recommended!”

Church
“Modeled on St. Peter's in Rome, the Collegial and Parish Church of St. Peter (Peterskirche) is built on a site originally occupied by a Roman church and later by one founded by Charlemagne in 792 AD. The present edifice was built in the 18th century and boasts a massive dome with a superb fresco and many artistic treasures. Other highlights include the Barbara Chapel with its magnificent portal, and in which Franz Karl Remp's Decollation of St. Barbara is found, and the choir with its High Altar and painting of the Immaculate Conception. Also of note is the nearby Plague Pillar, a 21-meter-tall Baroque pillar built to commemorate the end of the devastating plague of 1679 that cost at least 75,000 Viennese their lives. Also of interest is the nearby Abbey of the Scots (Schottenstift), built in the 12th century and extensively renovated and enlarged since. Its school included Johann Strauss and Austria's last emperor, Charles I, among its pupils, while its fine collection of artwork includes pieces from the 16th to 19th centuries.”

“Don't miss a guided tour through the Michaelagruft. This is where the emperors are buried right next to the plague victims. But don't be afraid of darkness and skulls! 30 minutes by subway U4 and U2.”
