We were greatly impressed and deeply moved by our Sunday morning participation in the service at St Stephen's. It was a full house, not counting the tourists who were in cordoned off areas so the service could continue without interruption. We were particularly touched by the organist's playing. Needless to say, the majesty of the cathedral enthralled us and drew... More

Spectacular in terms of dimension, artifacts, atmosphere. Try to visit on a sunny day to get the max from the stained glass windows

Stephansdom is the cathedral in Vienna and the place where the Habsburg emperors were crowned. It dates from the early middle ages and has an impressive array of architecture added over the years.

Was staying at the hotel facing this beautiful cathedral. It's situated in the midst of town and seems to be a popular attraction. Cannot be missed if you visit Vienna's city center. Looks amazing at night especially during Christmas with all the lighting ..

The cathedral is beautiful and placed in the center of town. It was very busy downtown so it is not too inviting to go inside but do if you have the chance. The height is impressive but overall it is like any other large church.

This cathedral is beautifully lit in the evenings to highlight its patterned roof and lattice work exterior, so do stroll by at night while in Vienna. Quite large inside, there is a fair amount to see on the main floor, but you especially don't want to miss the treasury (free with Vienna Pass). To get there, you take a tiny... More

I love the view from the tower. This place is my must see place each visit to Vienna. :) The most beautiful cathedral in Vienna to my mind. There is only one minus in this building and its the smell from the horses etc... standing around it... It should be prohibited to my mind.

I am not a religious person, but this church is breathtaking. There is so much history related to St. Stephen's and I recommend reading up on it. We attended a mass in the basement that was led by an English speaking priest. It was different than anything I have experienced. The priest was funny and attendees were locals who came... More

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.
