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.

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.

The main point of interest in Vienna to my mind - very impressive inside and outside as well, situated as a finish point of the main pedestrian flow.

This one is in the heart of the shopping area in central Vienna, so it's hard to miss it. Free entry into the church I think you pay if you want ti go up either of the towers. Usually I would tackle such a climb but my legs were still suffering after the city Marathon the day before. The church... More

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. Also for an expansive view of the city go up the Cathedral tower. And just a little trivia... this was featured in the classic film "Before Sunrise" (www.youtube.com/watch?v=9v6X-Dytlko)

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.
