Lonely Planet review for Dominikanerkirche
The Dominicans first came to Vienna in 1226, when Leopold VI of Babenberg invited them to settle, but their first church, built on the site of today’s Dominikanerkirche, was dismantled during the first Turkish siege in 1529 and the stone used to fortify the city walls. The church you see today was the first baroque church in Vienna and was consecrated in 1634. It was largely the work of Italian architects and artisans and is well worth visiting for its large interior of white stucco and frescos.
