St. Stephen's Cathedral (Stephansdom)

Vienna’s Stephansdom (also known as St. Stephen's Cathedral) is kind of a big deal. As the national emblem of Austria, it attracts over 1 million visitors every year. And rightfully so – at over 800 years old, it’s home to some of the country’s most interesting historical and architectural sights.

The High Altar, which took seven years to build in the 17th century, is just one of 18 altars inside the impressive Gothic and Romanesque structure. The red marble tomb of Emperor Frederick III is decorated with more than 240 statues - that's 6.667 statues for every year of his reign as Holy Roman Emperor.

If your tastes extend to the more macabre, visit the catacombs, built during the 1735 Bubonic plague they're, erm, 'home' to over 11,000 skeletons.

An excellent help to get ticket online without need to queue up at the Cathedral. It allows us to spent more time inside than queuing for ticket.

Church is beautiful and is a must. Catacombs are an experience, I could not think of food for some time after the tour :-) one tour is accessible by steps only, so consider this before looking into all inclusive ticket. Also, be flexible, church will not let you in during the mass.

The ticket that includes the sanctuary, north tower & catacombs is the best. All move along and are not difficult.

Gorgeous cathedral! It took us 3 hours to see everything, and it was worth every moment. I would suggest not doing the tower and treasury one after the other, because both have a lot of steps and your legs will be tired.
