Lonely Planet review

This Franciscan church is a glorious architectural deception. Outside it exudes the hallmarks of an early 17th-century Renaissance style, yet inside it is awash with gold and marble decorative features from the baroque era about 100 years later. The high altar takes the form of a triumphal arch and hidden behind this is Vienna’s oldest organ (1642), built by Johann Wöckherl.
