Michaelerkirche is one of the oldest churches and few of the Roman structures left in Vienna. It is dedicated to the Archangel Michael and was the parish church of the Imperial Court. The architecture of the church has Roman and Gothic influences. Adornments like sculptures, angels and cherubs give it a neo-classical feel. Frescoes dating back to 1400, have been recently discovered. It houses the largest pipe organ in Vienna, which was played by the legendary Joseph Haydn in 1749. Michaelergruft, the crypt, located below the church, where the rich and royalty were buried attracts visitors. Truly, a visit to the church takes you back to the Roman era.
