I decided to visit the catacombs on my latest visit to St Stephan's Cathedral. The guide spoke in both German and English. The tour was different and very interesting with stories on emperors' intestines on the one fans and Black Death victims on the other. Well worth €5.

Stunning, beautiful, amazing. The roof of the church is very different from what you'd expect & the inside is quite jawdropping! A must see!

The Stephansdom was more interesting from the outside with the typical roof tiles than from the inside. After a short tour we climed the south tower which brings you to about half way to the top. Nice view, but we it's a pitty you are not allowed to climb higher.

Such a beautiful, historic, massive cathedral.Take the elevator to the top for expansive views of Vienna. There are several tours available in the cathedral. We went on the catacomb tour, which was very interesting. I think 11:30AM may be the last time for tours.

The cathedral is beautiful. I also recommend taking the elevator to the top for a great view of the cathedral and downtown Vienna (it is 5 Euro, but well worth it).

one of Vienna's symbols, Stephansdom is a gothic cathedral located right in the centre of the city. Its majestic 2 towers dominate the place and guess what, they can be visited, if one has the guts to climb the 374 stairs of the South tower. The North one has an elevator and for only 5 eur you can admire the... More

St. Stephen's cathedral is the center of Vienna. It is beautiful to see during the day and at night. Just sitting on the bench staring at it is mesmerizing. The tile roof combined with the Gothic tower was so interesting and special.
