sombre but impressive, set in a busy square in the heart of the old town. Plenty of choral music and organ recitals.

This was by far my favorite sight when I was in Vienna. It is a beautiful gothic cathedral both inside and out, and this was one of my favorite cathedrals that I have seen because of this. This is certainly a must see and you can always go shopping in the plaza surrounding the cathedral - there are a lot of high end shops as well as souvenir stores.

It is an awesome sight when walking through the shopping district in the city centre to come upon the massive towers of this cathedral. They are in the process of cleaning it as well and the difference is striking. I can only imagine how splendid it will be upon completion. The interior is equally beautiful, I particularly enjoyed the stained glass and its rainbow effects on the interior walls and ceilings when the light strikes it just right. I got some great photos of it! A definite must see, though it's rather hard to miss it.

We attended a choral performance in the cathedral, and the accoustics were amazing, as one would expect. Breathtaking detail around every pew.

Beautiful gothic flamboyant architecture. It's at the center of the historic center and all the activities surround it.
