“Too crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

While this is a nice cathedral in the tourist epicentre, it is too crowded to be appreciated fully. A pity really, since it looks so nice from outside.

“great location,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

This is a great location but try to go during weekdays since is full of tourist. The location is great, also visit the catacombes bellow... For those lovers of esoteric stuff you can find interesting stuff.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

This is the central spot for most of what you want to walk to in old Vienna. The cathedral itself is spectacular. Our concierge gave us the times for Sunday service and we enjoyed a wonderful organ concert during the service. After the cathedral you may walk in any direction to further enjoy this wonderful city.

“A real beauty...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

A Must see to all visitors of Vienna, make sure to bring along a good camera with a zoom lens as the best parts of the Cathedral are closed to visitors and only a 18-270 mm zoom or similar will do the job…

Recommend to all a real beauty...
