I only saw it from the outside, but very beautiful and great architecture. Gives a bit of a wow when exiting from the underground.

I visited during winter, so that it was more magical with Christmas market, city lights and cold weather. Very big and stunning.

A guided tour is a must to be able to see everything that the cathedral has to offer although just wandering around is a beautiful experience.

Outside and inside, St. Stephen's Cathedral is spectacular, in fact overwhelming. This historical church is a must-see for all visitors of faith.

Be there early, preferably before 9am, before the crowd builds up. The structure is magnificent and the interior simply owesome and inspiring. Because the cathedral is smacked right in the center of town, you can easily access shopping and even walk to the Danube canal...More
