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.

  • One of the most beautiful churches and it has access to the rooftop where you can see all Vienna.. it was breathtaking with all the details and the beautiful melodies! You must visit it if it’s your first time in Vienna! There are plenty of charming streets crossing the church, so don’t forget to check them out too.
  • One of the most visited place in the central Vienna, standing tall with absolute beauty on its look. The top part of the cathedral has mozaic/tiles design which I never seen in any cathedrals/churches so surely unique. Inside beauty is also well preserved. Loads of tourists around on normal daytime, so plan accordingly if you wish to avoid huge rush. Lot of souvenir n Austrian delicacy shops around.
