Climbing the stairs is not really interesting since there is no view to the outside - except one through tiny windows. You end it in a small souvenir shop. You can "enjoy" the view through small windows and if you want to use the binoculars...More

This is an elaborate piece of architecture. Make sure you see the photo of the late Mother Teresa. This picture of her is almost never seen outside this cathedral. After visiting the place, head out for a walking tour in various directions. Plenty of food...More

St. Stephen's Cathedral is beautiful and awe-inspiring. So much history, beautiful ornamentation, and interesting architecture. The small Christkindlmarkt surrounding St. Stephen's was quite nice as well.

We were in Vienna for a river cruise and stayed by St Stephens Cathedral. The lights and Christmas Market made the night special. We stepped inside the Cathedral and caught the end of an English service. We enjoyed the visit very much.

For many people st Stephan’s cathedral is the center of Vienna. I would say that is a must to visit and now you can enjoy the Christmas markets around the cathedral. The atmosphere is also amazing.

If you go into the Crypt on a tour then you can, yes. It's about €5.50 for an adult.

The tower entrance is 5.50 euros and there was a small queue when I was there. I don't think it is possible or necessary to buy tickets in advance for this part of the Cathedral.

Ya during mass there are some people that sing and I did not get a good glimpse of it so I'm not sure of any live instruments.
