St. Stephen's Cathedral

Vienna, Austria
4.8 / 52
St. Stephen's Cathedral is a stunning and historic church in Vienna that is definitely worth a visit. The architecture is mind-blowing, with impressive Gothic and Romantic features. The cathedral is located near a subway station, making it easy to reach. There are various ticket options available, with the all-inclusive ticket being highly recommended, as it allows access to the main floor of the church, the towers, and the second story museum areas. However, it is advised to purchase tickets in advance, as the cathedral and the surrounding area can be extremely busy. The views from the South Tower are nice, but be prepared for a climb up narrow spiral steps and a somewhat cramped space. If you're interested in WW2 history, you can also see two old anti-aircraft towers from one of the viewpoints. Visitors have described the cathedral as incredibly interesting and beautiful. The all-inclusive ticket provides a guided tour of the crypt, which is highly recommended. It's advisable to arrive early to avoid crowds, as this part of Vienna is always busy with tourists. The exterior of St. Stephen's Cathedral is stunning, with intricate details and ornate walls. The interior is equally impressive, with beautiful stained glass windows and a majestic altar. The views from the towers offer breathtaking panoramic views of Vienna. Overall, St. Stephen's Cathedral is a must-visit for history enthusiasts and architecture lovers. The detailed work and awe-inspiring design make it one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Europe.
