in Stephansdom & the Historic Centre

One of the city's prettiest churches, the Peterskirche was built in 1733 according to plans of the celebrated baroque architect Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt. Interior highlights that make a visit highly worthwhile include a fresco on the dome painted by Johann Michael Rottmayr and a golden altar depicting the martyrdom of St John of Nepomuk. Regular organ recitals and concerts are also held here; check the program online.
