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.

  • What a stunning building, the architecture here is simply wonderful, from the beautiful colourful roof tiles to the spire with golden top sparkling in the sun.

  • What an absolutely amazing and beautiful church. It is right in the city center and awesome to see both during the day and night. The light projections on it at night are very neat to see. The inside is even more intricate. It is kind of funny to see Bose speakers being used in this centuries old church ! A must see !!
  • The cathedral of St. Stephen is a reference point of the city from 1400 AD. of many events in the history of Vienna. The architecture of the building and the Gothic-Romanesque style undoubtedly impress the visitor. In addition, inside the church there is one of the largest church organs, which unfortunately we did not hear. From the church towers, one can see the whole city, the view is outstanding. I highly recommend. However, have money on you as they do not accept cards.
