The Cathedral is in a beautiful square, unfortunately this Jan there were scaffoldings around large part. The bell tower, which can be seen from almost every corner of the city, is very beautiful and impressive The interior is rather disappointing

I found it to be a very dark, unwelcoming place. I looked forward to visiting while we were in Vienna but shouldn't have bothered. Staff very unfriendly too.

Pay attention to concerts and music being held in the cathedral. Don't miss it! The building is very nice if you enjoy historical and religious architecture. Get lost in the surroundings because is a beautiful city to walk and discover wonderful corners and viewpoints.

So beautiful. The architecture of this part of Europe better than expected. You can see it from far away. It's visible. But once you get there is amazing.

Breath taking if you walk into it right from underground station :-) Went inside on Sunday during a mass which was almost overwhelming. The whole structure is very impressive and beautiful, don't miss it!

Really beautiful piece of architecture! You cannot miss it,its in the city center,and its top can be spotted from far distance-so you can use it for coordination like we did:-) It's definitely a must see of the city

We went on a really cool 20 minute tour of the catacombs under St.Stephens cathedral.. Absolutely stunning and informative to the history of the church . I do not want to spoil the intrigue with too many details but be prepared to see a few real skeletons.
