Stunning inside and out. Just a pity that it is now crowded in by so many buildings. It's hard to really take in the size.

For any visitor to Vienna it is one of the must sees. Like most cathedrals, it is a beautiful and fascinating building. The roof is truly unique and in a city of timeless landmarks it manages to stand out.

I dont get why they only had one window open at the top of the tower. There are two towers. I recommend going to the only thats shorter and you can step outside.

Worth a visit. In the central area of Vienna the cathedral is situated. It is beautiful and large and the inside was also impressive.

I must say that the Stephansdom is of course a big touristic attraction, but it bothered us quite a bit that inside the dome it was quite noisy and we felt that the respect you should pay towards such a place was absolutely missing.

I've been to over 100 churches in Europe. Although this isn't the best gothic church in Europe, it is an excellent gothic church example and is well maintained, with lots of history. The exterior has a cool roof tile (shingle) patterns on it that are...More

The full tour is worth it! You get an audio tour, visit the special collections, go into the catacombs, and get to climb the towers.

It is a very busy place and even though there is plenty room I would suggest hanging on to your belongings.
