A city for all seasons

Home of the Habsburgs, the capital of classical music, and the multicultural melting pot of Mitteleuropa, Vienna is one of Europe’s most fascinating cities. Its slow-paced life, architectural variety, and intensely seasonal cultural and gastronomic pleasures make Vienna an ideal destination for visitors. Get ready for balmy summer evenings at wine taverns, mugs of mulled wine at Christmas markets, and strolls through historic streets.

A 1620's baroque masterpiece Editors' Note

Church of the Jesuits (Universitatskirche) is a two story Baroque building with double towers. It is located adjacent to the buildings that made up the old University of Vienna. The outside is beautiful yet subtle. The inside is exquisite with marble pillars, a carved pulpit, and frescoed ceiling.

Numerous side chapels, every inch elaborately decorated, give you plenty of sightseeing pleasure at the Church of the Jesuits (Universitatskirche). Looking up, it appears you have a view of the sky with angels in flight. There is no charge to tour the church, though donations are welcome. The Jesuits Church is easy to find; it is inside Vienna’s Ringstrasse.
