I returned to Ruprechtskirche the next day en route to Judenplatz, which is nearby. The church has a simple, venerable feel – unlike many of the Baroque and Historisches enormities all around Vienna. Ruprecht was the patron saint of salt, and the church stands on a high promontory overlooking the canal docks where salt was brought in from Salzburg (hence the name!). In addition to Taizé services, the church also hosts concerts of early music and contetmporary music from Spring through Fall. It is a dignified architectural presence amid the lively (and sometimes rowdy) precincts of the “Bermuda triangle” bars and nightclubs.
