I'm not a fan of churches, but we did a little peek inside. Although it was really crowded, we noticed that they give guided tours to the catacombs under the cathedral. The guide always talk first in German and then changed to English. My German isn't good enough (not yet, that is - hopefully) and although he changed language really... More

We didn't go inside but wandered around the outside of this lovely church. It is currently being cleaned and once finished it will look amazing as you can already see from the parts that have been finished already. It's very easy to find as it's just in amongst the Main Street for shopping.

This is a beautiful Cathedral and it is open at night which is a surprise and makes for a diversion from the crowds. We went to Mass there on a Sunday and it was a lovely service.

We visited the cathedral as part of a city tour whilst on a Viking river cruise. It is very impressive and dominates the centre of the old part of the city. A must if you are in Vienna.

Take the Catacombs Tour! It is not expensive and fascinating! Also climb the tower! Amazing view! It is over 300 steps so be in decent physical condition!

This church has had its own wars and survived and it is the #1 attraction in Vienna for me when I visited in 2006. The architecture is beyond. The Sculptures are in keeping with the times. Wish I had more time to spend there.

I am not an expert on architecture, but the St. Stephan Cathedral reminded me the Cathedral in Barcelona, which I had admired a lot. They look similar both inside, and outside with the exception of the roof of St. Stephan Cathedral, which is really astounding. It is free to visit and located in the very center of Vienna, the Stephansplatz.
