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.

It’s very good to see don’t get me wrong but when you book the complete tour beware you have to go around and find each enter ace to each tour staff on desk are always busy so it’s very hard to pin them down

St. Stephen's Cathedral (Stephansdom): Towers, Catacombs, Treasury and Tour
The Cathedral was magnificent and we enjoyed going through the entire building and learning it amazing history. Unfortunately the gentlemen at the information desk although helpful were not very polite and in fact they seemed quite bored with what they were doing. Really a shame as this is a wonderful building, however we didn’t let them spoil our visit and we highly recommend it

Very nice cathedral. Self-guided tour with audio-guide is great. Access to North tower is easy, and so is the access to the Treasury.

Great to have prebooked tickets but entries for each part were tricky to find! South tower climb well worth it.
