Absolutely stunning interior of this cathedral. Our guide told us when it was re-built after a fire, it was decided to make the interior light and airy as the people were coming out of a dark period..... more

This is a truly beautiful place! St Stephen's Cathedral is the Roman Catholic cathedral of Vienna, Austria. It is the seat of the archbishop of Vienna and the most important religious building in Austria. St Stephen's Cathedral is a Gothic-style church dating back to the 13th century and stands at the heart of Vienna's historic city center. It is one of the most important Gothic structures in Central Europe and a major tourist attraction in Vienna.
There are 5 separate organs to play by one person at the same time. Excellent organ recital at noon and 5 Euro to enter. No recording allowed, but you can buy cd in the end.
The beauty of this Cathedral is breathtaking. All the gorgeous artwork that makes St. Stephan's Cathedral, definitely worth the visit Hearing the history from the yrs past is so interesting. My entire group that I was traveling with all agreed they were pleased they took the time to visit.
Very beautiful place to visit, now there is a winter market in front of the church.
Super impressive cathedral in the center of a awesome plaza. Story about the cannon ball still lodged in side of church about 4-5 stories up totally got my interest. Roof tiles/shingles are another amazing thing....have never seen anything like it.
