    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.

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

    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)))

    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).

    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?

    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.

    The Church is beautiful from the outside, inside it is chock full of pushy tourists with not a lot to see. Compared to other churches in Europe it's not so worthwhile to venture inside

    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!

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

    If you're climbing the tower, bring something to drink for when you get to the panorama room.
