Impressive architectural structure formed under romanesque and gothic style. Interior is huge and full of antique details. There is a spot where you can light a candle and dedicate it to your loved ones.

A scenic and spiritual wonderful--there was a religious service going on when we visited, and it enhanced the experience. Glittering and cavernous and sobering. Amazing.

Beautiful architecture. The cathedral contains beautiful artwork and decoration, without being gaudy. Every city has its cathedral, but this is one that I would not miss.

We lived literally 20 m from this overwhelming cathedral at the Hotel am Stephansdom. During our stay we thought, we could always go into that overwhelming church. On our final day we finally did, it turned out to be dark and sad.

I decided to visit the catacombs on my latest visit to St Stephan's Cathedral. The guide spoke in both German and English. The tour was different and very interesting with stories on emperors' intestines on the one fans and Black Death victims on the other. Well worth €5.

Stunning, beautiful, amazing. The roof of the church is very different from what you'd expect & the inside is quite jawdropping! A must see!

The Stephansdom was more interesting from the outside with the typical roof tiles than from the inside. After a short tour we climed the south tower which brings you to about half way to the top. Nice view, but we it's a pitty you are not allowed to climb higher.
