We liked both the exterior and interior of this Cathedral. Beautiful architecture and artworks. A must see in Vienna. Admission is free. Yet, one has to pay to see Catacombs.

To go here, best option is by Train. Tube rail of Vienna runs below this structure, which really surprised me.

The little chapels on the sides are so beautiful. I lit a candle and prayed for special intentions at a couple of them. The center of the church is breath taking!! I didn't want to leave. The catacombs are kinda scary because it's dark and the floors are a bit slippery. The gift shop is s bit tiny and you'd... More

One of Europe's truly grand cathedrals. Climbing to the top is a MUST if you are physically able. A spectacular view of Vienna from atop St. Stephens!

The cathedral is beautiful and a perfect setting in the center of Vienna. We took the catacomb tour and it was simply fascinating. My friend enjoy mass and said it was breathtaking.

Even though we did not go into the cathedral, we wandered the square and marveled at the roof tiles. This is a key location in Vienna.

The outside of this cathedral is unique. The tall spires and design on the roof make this cathedral special. The inside is beautiful but we've seen more spectacular cathedrals. Worth a quick visit as there is no cost to get in. There is a gate at the back of the pews to keep tourists out of the main area. To... More

This cathedral is in the old center of Vienna. The roof has been restored, and there is work going on outdoors. There is a fee to tour the entire interior, but you can walk into part of it to get the feel. Beautiful, historic, lovely windows. You can also climb the tower with interesting views.

Definitely must visit with amazing carvings and stained glass, with enormous intricate designed domes. The 13th century 1mosaic roof is worth the visit alone. If you are lucky you might be able to attend a concert of choral music in the church. No booking required but arrive early, no fee but all donations are appreciated.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
