If you ever heard about Vienna, you probably pictured a city full of beautiful churches, cathedrals and other sacral buildings. This is true, so let's see the best churches in Vienna! Each of them offers a spiritual ambiance, impressive architecture and beautiful works of art. Come and discover these amazing religious sites and their history with a Local Expert! Your 3-hour private tour of Vienna’s churches begins in Sigmund Freud Park, right in front of Votivkirche. Your Expert Guide will tell you interesting facts about this 19th-century neo-Gothic church, then lead you on a walking tour through Vienna’s Historic Center. You will pass Schottenkirche (the basilica of “Our Lady of the Scots”) and head to Minoritenkirche. It is one of the oldest and most artistically valuable churches in Vienna. Inside, you will discover a hidden gem of Italian Renaissance - a mosaic version of Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper. The tour will pass the imperial palace complex of Hofburg, offering a chance to learn about the spiritual life of the House of Habsburgs. You will also see the Column of Pest (the Holy Trinity Column), built in the late 17th-century to commemorate victims of the plague. Nearby is the Church of St. Peter (Peterskirche). From outside it looks inconspicuous, but the interior of this Baroque church will amaze you with beautiful frescoes, paintings, and a domed roof with lots of gilding. The true highlight of this tour lies ahead - a visit to St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Austria's most prominent national symbol. Entrance tickets are included, so you can admire the Cathedral’s unique roof with colorful tiles and towers, which are the highest point of the Old Town skyline, and its tranquil interior filled with sacred art and stunning altars. Book an extended 4-hour tour of Vienna’s churches to also visit the magnificent St. Charles Church (Karlskirche)! It is one of the city's greatest buildings, featuring beautiful frescoes, splendor and incredible colors in 1250 square meters cupola. The entrance ticket includes access to the panoramic terrace, which offers an amazing view of Karlsplatz and nearby monuments. This extended walking tour is also a chance to discover more highlights and hidden gems of Vienna, as you will pass the Donnerbrunnen, the Imperial Crypt beneath the Capuchin Church, Albertina, and the world-renowned Vienna State Opera! Don't miss out!
