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. Choose an inclusive tour to see all of the parts of this site. Use our Vienna trip planner to arrange your visit to St. Stephen's Cathedral and other attractions in Vienna.

  • The prime landmark in the city and although the area around it is touristy you still have to come. You can enter some areas of the cathedral for free and it is worth paying extra to take the lift up....  more

  • Great experience! Absolutely loved the tour of the catacombs send learning the history of the cathedral. The North Tower has an unmatched view of the city and worth a look. The South Tower's views are unfortunately not as great but an interesting experience to climb up all those narrow steps!
  • What an absolutely amazing and beautiful church. It is right in the city center and awesome to see both during the day and night. The light projections on it at night are very neat to see. The inside is even more intricate. It is kind of funny to see Bose speakers being used in this centuries old church ! A must see !!
