What can you say about a beautiful work as this Church. The adornments are worth the trip. Take time to learn about the history of the church a bit as well.

It was a bit of a walk from the Dom with a hill or incline shall I call it to get to the Church! The stained glass windows were very pretty to see, but I really enjoyed seeing the beautiful organ that was along side one of the Windows. However I did not book a tour nor do I think... More

The mosaic glass has stories behind so don't miss the stories while you visit this church. The front door is very specia, too.

There are so many breathtaking churches in Europe that it is often hard to describe the special qualities that make each unique. Not so with Stephanskirche. Chagall donated his work in stained glass windows after the bombing of the war had caused so much destruction. We saw the "light" version since we had 3 small children and didn't feel the... More

From the moment you walk in to the church and in to the blue light cast by Chagall's stained glass windows to the moment you exit to re-enter the natural outdoor light, your spirit and emotions are transported to somewhere quite unique. What an extraordinary and incredibly beautiful experience it is to sit and marvel at these works of art... More

St. Stephan's Church is famous for its windows pinted by Shagal. Visit it in a sunny day to plunge into the blue light coming through windows!
