Stunning Cathedral with much history that the audio guide does a good job of bringing alive. It's pricey, but worth it. Pay a bit more and hike up the 300 steps to the bell tower for an awesome view. Avoid the overpriced coffee shops nearby, walk five minutes and pay a fraction for the same thing with better service.

This cathedral is one of the best we saw in Europe. Plan to spend some time here because there is a great deal to see and appreciate in this very special place.

The the mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vienna is a must see monument. A very rich and exceptional church.

I am not religious, but this building and it's history is magnificent. I paid the €4 fee to access the pew area and it was the best money spent in Vienna. Sitting there imagining the things that have happened in the building over 100s of years whilst wondering at the beauty of the architecture was an experience I'll never forget.

I have never seen such magnificent architecture as I did here at St. Stephen's Cathedral. We did not take the guided tour; we just walked around; this is a must see when in Vienna. The diamond-patterned tile roof is majestic in itself. Mozart was married in this Cathedral and his funeral was also held here. The gothic style is prevalent,... More

What a beautiful church! It is free to walk in and look around. They block off the main part of the church for mass so timing is everything.

It is a must see cathedral in Vienna. Even it is very crowned all the time. But, you can not say you have been to Vienna without a single visit here. BTW, the entrance to the holy place is reserve for paid ticket. If you not much enthusiastic with religious object, watching from a free path is enough. The tour... More

I like the look and feel of this church. It has a gothic vibe to it, with high ceiling that is looking majestic
