The Jesuit Church (German: Jesuitenkirche), also known as the University Church (German: Universitätskirche), is a two-floor, double-tower church in Vienna, Austria. Influenced by early Baroque principles, the church was remodeled by Andrea Pozzo between 1703 and 1705. The Jesuit Church is located on Dr. Ignaz Seipel-Platz, immediately adjacent to the old University of Vienna buildings.

Take a look into the Jesuit Church (Universitätskirche) which dates from 1627. The “fake dome” is best seen when you look up from the light-colored stone of the nave. Between September and June Sunday mass here features sacred music by composers such as Haydn, Mozart and Schubert (starts at 10:30 a.m.). A CITY WALK BY TITA BÜTTNER
As another poster said, it's not much on the outside and most tourists would just walk by but go inside and you will be amazed. Reminds me of the Assam church in Munich. It was empty when I was there. So quiet.
Small churches like this, Dominic church are with visiting although many tourist guides do not mention them. Beautiful interior.
Really hard to find and easy to miss whilst you're here but make a point of coming to see it. Wonderful church.
Impressive church with rich decoration - typical of the Jesuits Outside looks quite usual, but wait to enter.
I was shocked to find this Church far more beautiful and awesome then St. Stephen's Church. Hidden in a side street only 15 minutes away and not many know about it. Excellent pipe organ there and some concerts are performed there. A must see to really appreciate such beauty👍👍👍
Small church but very beautiful and not crowded by tourist. Worth visiting.
Awesome church, better than the rest and no chinese people walking like sheep. If u are devote to satan is a good place to go
The Church of the Jesuits is a Baroque gem and one of my very favourite churches to visit in Vienna. Situated on the backstreet Dr.-Ignaz-Seipel-Platz, this is a wonderful place to include in your sightseeing plan if you are a fan of architecture, art and historic churches. The church facade is fashioned in Baroque but is somewhat simple compared to the interior which has a way of enamouring those who enter. Designed by Italian Baroque master Andrea Pozzo in the early 18th century, there is much to catch the eye's attention as you scan the colourful and heavily gilded marble columns of the main hall, Spend some time to enjoy the intricate altar, the ornate pulput and side chapel bays of the main hall. A major highlight of the Jesuit Church is the ceiling fresco which includes a two-dimensional illusionary dome painting by Pozzo. This is a fine example of painting optical illusions for which he was known for. If you step into the side bays on either side of the hall, notice the small ceiling holes, each accompanied with a unique optical illusion scene to complement Pozzo's ceiling masterpiece. Give the Church of the Jesuits 10-15 minutes to view and enjoy and then continue onward with other intended sightseeing. If you enjoy Baroque churches, there are other fine examples within the historic city centre, including the nearby Dominican Church, The Franciscan Church, St. Peter's and St. Charles churches.
