This beautiful cathedral is well worth a visit.The inside is ornate with all the side alters. The main alter is ornate and magnificent. You can climb the towers for better views, but we did not do, as we climbed so many on this trip. I heard it was great from people coming down.

The architecture in the cathedral is very nice. It is centrally located in Vienna. The is a metro station right in front of its entrance.

The view from outside is lovely and going inside is beautiful as well. My favorite aspect was paying the extra to go the the top of the tower. I like heights,but it was quite a thrilling experience and the veiw was incredible.

Cathedral I was really like, especially liked the view from the tower. On the tower lead stairs (about 360 ) but it is worth the walk .

Sadly, because they need to raise money for repairs, a large portion of the main floor is blocked off unless you pay an access fee. In my opinion, not as beautiful as many other cathedrals we have visited in Germany, Hungary and Austria, but historically significant in Vienna. Only you can decide if it is worth the price of admission.

The cathedral is a very nice place to visit but the information desk lacks good explanation and professional staff with at least a brochure to explain a brief history about the place

The cathedral is amazing...but i was very tired after climbing all the stairs in the tower...there were a lot, but the view wasn't what i expected..afterwards, my feet hurt so bad after climbing..and i actualy paid for that because it wasn't included in the Vienna Pass.

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.
