Create an itinerary including St. Stephen's Cathedral
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.

  • Very touristy place. Thousands of tourists in the square with a Christmas Market beside it. Be sure to take a picture of yourself beside the scale replica Cathedral outside. The inside is...

  • Such a lovely building, interesting and so different on the inside. It is right dead centre of the city and should be visited.

  • Very very stunning church in the heart of the city. Made it there during mass in the evening, but will definitely be going back today to get the feel of the place during the day. Amazing architecture from both inside and outside. It’s jaw dropping. And it has such an amazing/positive/calming energy. The is no entrance fee to the church itself but if you wanna climb the tower and its 300+ steps or to see the catacombs you need to pay. Will add an update after I do the tours today.
  • Wow. I'll be yet another person to add a 5* review to this magnificent church! Stunning in its exterior, the beauty manages to extend to its interior. We made it during a mass which was great to experience and then visited again in the evening. Let the pictures speak as opposed to my review, and in reality, if you're in Vienna you're probably going to visit :) Ultimately, my only gripe is that they only accept cash for tours.
