We chickened out climbing the 340+ stairs to the top of the highest tower but took the elevator to the other. Even the lower tower gives a spectacular view of the city and surrounding area.

+Amazing inside of the cathedral +Worth to take the stairs and go to the top of the cathedral. It has a panoramic Vienna view. -Be careful from the stairs, the width is too short

We just came to see the Dom but there was a tour of the crypts starting at the same time. Its cost €5,50 and it was worth it. Great guide and historical, lots of creppy bones to see. Took about 30mins and was worth it!!

The church is stunning and worth seeing. Although be prepared for crowds in this area and long lines to get in. There are many shops and restaurants around the church to enjoy as well.

If you're into history, religion or architecture, this is a must! Simply beautiful and reminiscence of a past time ! On our departure, the Sunday Bells sounded, like something from a movie, the magnificence, grandeur and depth of sound.

This is a very pretty Church, but the most special is the mosaic pattern on the roof. Not the prettiest in Europe, but still Worth visiting.

We were staying across the road at the Stephansplatz Hotel and visited the Cathedral a couple of times. On one occasion, a choir were practising and the sound was heavenly. The architectural is truly breathtaking and worth a visit.

A popular spot in Vienna for tourists but it is another dark, large church. Worth taking a look but there is nothing inside you don't see at other churches. The roof is unusual and worth looking up and seeing.

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.
