I thought this cathedral was beautiful, so impressive when you walk around the corner and suddenly see it. I highly recommend going up the tower - you get some lovely views, and best of all you can take the elevator up there, so no scary stairs to contend with.

If you have seen one cathedral, you've seen them all really. One point that bothered me is the multitude of tourist guides outside the church asking if we want to buy tickets for evening concerts... Too pushy...

If you go lots of cathedrals this has enough to hold your interest but to get all the history, etc, it is probably wise to go on a tour. However, just to have a 'mooch' is enough if you want to escape from the weather, or to have a rest, the statues still have their paint on them. What was... More

A great place to start a day of sight seeing. This church is still an active cathedral so you have to take care when visiting. They are in the midst of cleaning the limestone so watch for scaffolding. The Crypts are creepy as you can expect but the rest is quite beautiful.

Average church of gothic style like many other churches in Europe. Church is located right in the center making a point we kept coming back to.

Amazing cathedral to walk around and see. We opted to climb the tower (about 4 euro). I wouldn't recommend it. The stairway is supper narrow and it is used for both up and down direction. The top of the tour is a small gift shop and small windows with limited views. Much likely able to get better views of the... More

This cathedral is in the centre of town and is surrounded by shops and a lovely waking plaza. The cathedral itself is beautiful and it was a fun little challenge to hike to the top of the tower!

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood 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 centre. 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.
