St Stephen’s Cathedral, surely the symbol of Vienna. Built in 1683 by the Turks, this magnificent cathedral is located in the heart of the city centre. Thanks to its colourful scaly roof, the church is one of Vienna’s most famous sights.

The Cathedral is beautiful outside and inside, so it is a good idea to look inside, but it is an even better idea to climb this cathedral. Walk up 334 steps and admire the spectacular view from the top. The Cathedral has a tower that rises 136 metres above the city. The view is truly fantastic!  

You can visit St Stephen’s Cathedral for free, only if you want to climb the towers or visit the crypt, you have to pay an entrance fee.
