A beautiful cathedral, with an even more beautiful view of Vienna from the top of the tower. Well worth a visit.
The Cathedral is Grand, but the visit to the catacombs gives one a better perspective of life (and death) in medieval Vienna
Good restaurants, good shopping, history, all in the same area. Don't forget to eat Sacher torte with a whipped cream loaded Wiener Melange.
you haven't been to Vienna if you miss St.Stephen´s you don´t necessary have to climb the rather narrow staircase - to the tower - but you should. it is an experience and gives you insight into the Gothic style as a Catholic the church´s interior will highen your spirits and when you have the chance visit a mass with organ...

The spire, roof and location are the big draws to this gothic cathedral. As for the interior, sadly, almost all of the stained glass appears to have been destroyed a some point, but the atmospheric space full of other interesting details to keep you interested.

If possible try to hear mass hear. The Cathedral is simply amazing. Try to get to the second level to see the cathedral in a different view.

St. Stephen's was being cleaned while we were there, so there is some scaffolding surrounding the building. The mosaic tiled roof can be seen from afar and leads you to the center of the city.
one of the major must-sees! there wasn't so many people when we got there. it is very silent and there is a big park around it. you can enjoy the silence and peace there. you must visit here.
