We have been in Europe 3 weeks and we are getting "churched" out. This is a lovely cathedral one of the prettiest. They do block you off from the center of the church if you don't pay. Lovely photo of St Teresa there as well and she has always been "my Saint"

This is one of the places to visit I had on my must visit list, I was not disappointed, the interior is magnificent, but you must , if you are able climb the 347 steps to the the top, but the view is awesome. You might find that the narrow staircase quite daunting though, so be aware that this is... More

Great architecture as to be expected but take the extra time and make the effort to climb to one of the viewing platforms for some breath taking views of Vienna.

We booked the ticket covering everything from the catacombs to the towers, the beautiful and impressive alter and the amazing collection of jewels. It was really worth it. Going to the jewels gallery gives you an extra insight to the Cathedral.

This cathedral is outstanding, particularly the glazed tiles on the roof. Visit closet to midday & you will get a wonderful rendition of the bells

This is very nice cathedral however it's completely ocerun with tourists and it looses it appeal because of it. There are lots of shops in situ ding streets and restaurants and it's add to the croKompressionsstrümpfe mit Reißverschlussdes, Inside very difficult to walk. The building is being renovated but anyway it's worth to see it.

It's the heart of Vienna, the heart of Austria. A place to feel the many centuries of history of the city and the country, through the pieces of art accurately displayed. A must for any visitor to this city. Plan sufficient time to visit the church, the underground part and the towers, with a wonderful view to the whole city.

Visited the church. Some access was limited/closed off. But full of history. Watch out for the cafes close by - very expensive.

Loved visiting the old cathedral but was surprised at all the marketing happening at the back of the church - tons of people not respecting the sanctity either - loud talking without regard of others. Was also put off a bit by the beggars standing at the front door. Although not aggressive, was off putting. The cathedral itself is breathtaking..worth... More

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.
