Vienna | the Churches

Friends, it is time for yet another post about our time in Vienna, Austria. And I can almost guarantee it will not be the last! It’s been so fun to read some of your comments- though I wish you were here with me, I am so glad to be able to share this little corner of the world with you, via my photo blog. So, thanks for reading. :)

This trip has been packed full of sights to see, food to eat, time with friends and family… it’s really been an amazing way to spend this Christmas (and soon, New Year’s!) I can hardly believe we only have three days left, even though I know I have been here for two weeks already!

Here are just a few photos from the churches we have visited here in Vienna. They are so amazing. That’s really it. Just amazing. They are hundreds of years (we are talking like 900+ years) old. Some of the lavishness, I will admit, can seem a bit over-the-top… but the ornate, intricate detail really is very beautiful.

I introduced you to Stephansdom in another post when I boasted about Vienna’s architecture. Here it is again…

And the inside…

St. Rupert’s, the oldest church in the city. (side note: I really love the Jerusalem Cross…)

I think this next one is my favorite. Klosterneuburg- this Monastery was a place that Kristi accidentally led us to. And the tour was well worth it. So glad we took the wrong bus to end up here. :)

This is what I mean when I say intricate details… 

This organ is played only five times a year in order to preserve its original, super-old mechanics.

Tomorrow we head out of Vienna for a little tour into the country. I am excited to tell you all about it!

    You amaze me with your pictures. I am so happy to read and see what you have been up to in Vienna. The churches are what I was so glad to be able to see when I was in Europe. Hope you enjoy your visit in the “country”, and the rest of you stay. Love you all!ReplyCancel
