I have 2 very favourite churches in Vienna, not posted here so far.

Nice thread

edit: one has actually already been posted, Maria Gestade. There is also a great pub right next to it!

Here is a Protestant Church - the Evangelische Christuskirche - in Vienna. Striking and elegant design and setting. The phtographer is quite gifted:
