“Griechenkirche - Nice change of church scenery in Vienna”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The Greek Orthodox Church (Griechenkirche), also known as the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church is located in the innere Stradt on Fleischmarkt street.

The church was built in 1787 by Theophil Edvard Hansen and is a rare example of a Byzantine style church found in Vienna. Here you can see an attractive red and gold striped (brick) exterior with classic arched windows. On the inside, there is an attractive narthex, featuring many columns, sloped ceiling and frescos.

The church nave is heavily frescos, including some nice paintings, chandelier and an attractive iticonostasis in the front of the nave. Like many churches in the first district, the nave was in very good condition and the attendant on duty was happy for us to take pictures inside.

Overall, we found the Griechenkirche a nice change of scenery from the mostly baroque and gothic style church scene in the first district. Looking very much more like church visits in Greece or Turkey, this is a pleasant surprise and interesting place to find and explore in the historic city centre.

“Plenty see in this little corner of the city”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Didn't go in, but it looks wonderful on the outside.

Also check out the two lovely buildings next to it: Haus mit Muttergottesrelief and Haus mit Gotischem Wohnturm.
