  • Don't forget it is Feast of the Immaculate Conception today. You may want to call to confirm this place is open.

    Landmarks can sometimes be hard to in Vienna. Everywhere you look, you'll witness incredible architecture. However, this majestic roman-gothic masterpiece is absolutely unmistakable. A must visit.

    Be among the first of the day to enter Vienna’s landmark gothic cathedral. Those with a head for heights should climb the 343 steps for fabulous views from the top of the south tower (€3.50/£2.80).

    Scenic views, architecture, amazing view of the city, breathtaking Wien from north tower. You can use an elevator or steps

    Vienna's most famous landmark... you can actually climb inside the spire, not just take the lift to the big bell, did you know that?

    The view is absolutely great! But the main disadvantage is huge amount of dark uncomfortable stairs. So if you are not good at sport, just go strait to the opposite Northen tower with the elevator)))

    Every route leads here. Free wifi. You cant miss the cathedral while visiting Wien. Free entrance but you need 5,5 euros to take the lift to the roof

    This is an active church so time your visit accordingly or you'll be in the back until after mass.

    One of the must of vienna sights!! the view from the top is stunning !! you can try the elevator instead of the 343 steps.

    Beautiful church. Unfortunately crowded with grown-ups who could not be quite when I visited it. Maybe a good idea to visit it early when they open.

    It's impressive to see from the inside and outside, but the tours are a bit messy. Nonetheless, worth a visit!

    The Stephansdom, the city’s famous cathedral, is a towering house of worship wedged into a modest size square known at the Stephansplatz.

    It is the landmark of Vienna and a must-see for tourists. P.S. It looks like it's made of lace. ☺️

    Paying 4.5 Euros to climb 343 stairs until reaching the top. It was the most annoying experience of my vienna trip.

    Don't waste your money on just seeing the cathedral's interior. While you can only walk along the sidelines without paying, there's not much to see anyway. Vienna has many prettier churches for free.
