Pazmanitengasse is a street in Vienna Leopoldstadt district.

It was named in 1867 after (the name of students of) the Pázmáneum, the Vienna Catholic seminary, later university, founded in 1623 by Cardinal Péter Pázmány, a protagonist of the Counter-Reformation and the father of modern Hungarian language.

The street was home to the largest synagogue in Vienna (the Pazmanitentempel, built since 1910), until its destructions in 1938 during Kristallnacht.
