Amazing!

Anything that took 300-400 years to build is worth visiting. This was incredible to witness. You can see this from all over the city.

There are free tours at the cathedral. It is beautiful gothic styled church. The catacomb tour is especially interesting starting at 10am at the stairs inside the church. The guide was official and not very friendly. If you can look past this it is definitely worth it. The St Stephens cathedral is also a major starting point to other site... More

A lovely building which looks better outside than in. Unfortunatiely the first thing encountered as you enter is usually a beggar.

This is a wonderful cathedral. We were amazed at the views from the North Tower. There is a charge, but you have an elevator to save steps.

Free to enter. Interesting to view - more like a museum than a church. In the middle of the city and easy to reach via public transport or walking around the city.

Although the cathedral is constantly undergoing a facelift, it is beautiful indoors and out. Stay for a mass if for no other reason than to hear the choir!

Opens till late, so might be a good idea to get there in the evening when other venues are closed. The church is certainly very beautiful and grand, and the gothic architectural style is clearly visible. Even more interesting than the church was the church treasury collection (which you reach by taking a lift near the entrance gate). I am... More

The gothic cathedral was too huge to fit in my camera for a picture. Amazing and beautiful design. We watched a Vivaldi concert here and the acoustics were great!

A must to visit if you are in Vienna. One of the most impressive buildings that we have visited. Make sure you take a trip to the top of the the tower.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
