It is located in the center of the city so you will probably cross it on your way so you might as well stop by. It is very ancient and baroque style architecture. While you are in there, you can buy tickets for 6 Euros...More

Majestic, towering St. Stephen's Cathedral was a much anticipated site for us in the heart of Historic Vienna. Visitors can find this glorious, colorfully tiled cathedral due to the dominance of the cathedral's spires in the city skyline. The cathedral is massive with continuous attention...More

I decided to take a trip to the op of the South Tower. It was a nice view although couldn't see too much. Cathedral is beautiful inside and reminds me of Cologne Cathedral.

The inside is quite dark - not the most beautiful we have seen). We didn't visit the tower which might give a great view (it was too cold and already dark outside). The entery is free except for the tower.

Excellent place to stop and take in the gothic majesty. A very nice place in the centre of the city. Shame about the people flouting the no photo rules!

We found the view of the roof to be mesmerizing. It is 364-feet long, and covered by 230,000 individually glazed tiles. The first parish church on this site was consecrated in 1147. Since then, there have been constant repairs and reconstruction with additions and renovations,...More

If you go into the Crypt on a tour then you can, yes. It's about €5.50 for an adult.

The tower entrance is 5.50 euros and there was a small queue when I was there. I don't think it is possible or necessary to buy tickets in advance for this part of the Cathedral.
