Intricate in design and architecture, St. Stephen's Cathedral is a cultural icon and symbol of Austrian identity. With a multicolored tile roof and tall Romanesque towers, it has become one of the most recognizable images of the city. Consecrated in 1147, the cathedral stands on the remains of former versions, which were destroyed by fire, siege, and World War II. The cathedral's repairs and rebuilding can be seen today in the mixture of Romanesque and Gothic styles. Join a guided tour to learn more about the iconic building's history. Separate tours lead you through the main cathedral, the catacombs, the treasury, or up one of the towers for a view of Vienna from above.

St. Stephen's Cathedral reviews
We didn't go inside as it was a very busy day, and we were on a walking tour. The cathedral is beautiful. Very near the cathedral, you can get a horse drawn carriage. more »
This is clearly the most important site to visit in the City and it dominates the area. I always enjoy visiting the church and will return each time I am in the city. more »
Impressive Gothic-era cathedral with distinctive high tower. Many period features. A lot of visitors, but no real crowds. You can find some quiet places to sit down and enjoy the atmosphere. The cathedral is set in the middle of charismatic Stephansplatz. The best possible combination.
The must-see spot of Vienna. A majestic temple and a spacious area full of shops, cafés, restaurants and bars. Some of the best hotels of Vienna are to be found in the area. So many people pass by and it is amazing how clean this place stays! You have to go inside the cathedral and admire its interior. If you consider yourself brave enough, you can climb up the around 400 stairs and you will get to one of the towers. The view of the city is breathtaking!
