This cathedral is in the centre of town and is surrounded by shops and a lovely waking plaza. The cathedral itself is beautiful and it was a fun little challenge to hike to the top of the tower!

This cathedral sits right in the center of Vienna. Walking distance to everything. The architecture and design is amazing. So much detail. Definitely check it out!

Although originally Romanesque, it is an incredible and beautiful example of Gothic architecture from as early as the 13th Century. The interior is stunningly ornate dating from late 14th early 15th centuries. A few of us went up the north tower to see the views of Vienna, the Pummerin Bell and of course the roof of glazed tiles, meticulously restored... More

Beautiful architecture and the views from the top are stunning (extra 5 euros). We paid for an additional tour which really wasn't worth it - all you get is to go a bit nearer to the centre of the church.

A beautiful church randomly located within a high street. It has an amazing patterned, mosaic like ceiling. Inside the church is just as beautiful. You can take 2 tours of the church and go up both towers. My partner and I chose the one where you had to climb 300+ steps. It is hard work as it is a small... More

As a fan of classical music, visiting the cathedral is surreal. It was said that this is the place where Beethoven had discovered his deafness.It was so beautiful!

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.
