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.

We started with the main part of the church with the audio set which was rather informative and interesting; I particularly enjoyed learning about the cathedrals church, which is discussed briefly towards the beginning of the audio.
The tour of the catacombs was also informative; I feel this experience made the all inclusive tickets worth the cost. I was unaware of all the remains underneath our feet, which made this tour very interesting.
The bell tower is interesting however as we visited in January it was extremely cold up there, so I imagine it would be a better experience during the summer months.

Only by showing the e-ticket on the smartphone, we quickly got the admission ticket. It was swift and pleasant handling. The north tower is equipped with a frequent elevator service, so it was a friendly access for almost anyone. The catacombe is large and quite interesting experience with bilingual guide (but the group is rather big and you have to be close to the guide to be able to follow the story). Treasure room was also beyond my expectation with all the specially decorated remains in quiet environment (much less visitors) even with the nice view over the nave.

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.
