Also called Stephansdom in some guide books. Beautiful cathedral in heart of Vienna with distinctive tiled roof and towers. Attractive interior as well. Heavily damaged in World War II and restored to former glory. Magnificent!

This cathedral is very beautiful, when we were there in December there was a service for Christmas and it was marvelous. You cannot go to Vienna and miss seeing the cathedral.

The exterior was undergoing cleaning/restoration during out visit so it was hard to appreciate. The cathedral is small and the interior is worth a visit as it is quite pretty.

We only entered the first part of the church... because we did not want to pay. The church on itself is really nice and worth seeing.

Do not miss walking into St. Stephen's and lighting a candle. Loved noting the evolution of history in the walls including the O5 carved in 1945 by the Austrian Resistance.

St. Stephen's is a majestic, Gothic structure, situated right in the heart of Vienna's wonderful city centre. The interior is as impressive as the outside.

It is a very busy place and even though there is plenty room I would suggest hanging on to your belongings.
Am I able to sit in the pews at St. Stephen's Cathedral? Even if I don't pay the 5.50 euro fee?

Yes. You can sit on the right where people light prayer candles and it can be quieter there. There are also some pews on the left side for sitting near the small altars.
How do I get there using public transportation?
