Church of St. Ruprecht
Situated on the area of the former Vindobona Camp, it was the first Parish Church of Vienna, before this function passed over 1147 to St. Stephan. Today it's the rectorate church.
The current church has been reconstructed several times. The oldest parts originate from the 12th century. Several major reconstructions and supplement renovations are recorded from the 14th to 19th centuries.
In the inside of the church, contained in the apse's central window, are the two oldest pane-glass windows in Vienna dating circa 1300 are beside some remarkable figures as well as the contemporary stain-glass windows from Lydia Roppolt to be mentioned especially.
Amidst the hurly-burly in the city, St. Ruprecht provides its visitors not only with an astonishing experience, but also a place of calm retreat. The church is specially open to visitors on Friday evenings for a "night church" vigil.
Congregational worship will be celebrated each Saturday at 5 p.m. (in July and August at 6 p.m.). Concelebrating guests are welcome.
