Vergilius Chapel

An Ancient Substructure Coming to Life

Come see the Vergilius Chapel (Virgilkapelle), next to St. Stephen’s Cathedral, a medieval chapel in an underground station. The chapel was discovered while developing the underground. After renovation, it was opened in 2015. It was originally built in early 13th century as a chapel substructure. The Maria Magdalena Church was built over it. It no longer exists, but the outlines are still visible around St. Stephen’s Square. The chapel features an altar for St. Vergilius. In the next room, there is an exhibition about medieval Vienna focusing on the chapel, its construction and use, and its position in the shadow of St. Stephen’s Cathedral.
