The tomb of Friedrich III is another highlight inside of Stephansdom - you may see it at the very end of the right nave of the cathedral, and you may get rather close to it ONLY, when you attend the guided tour ! The tomb dates back to the 15th century and was made of red marble : a large ornate sarcophage with a fence around of it. Take a closer look at this fence, and you will see various animal-sculptures crawling around the sarcophage. Emperor Friedrich III donated the Wiener Neustaedter Altar and so he was also buried inside the cathedral.

A picture of that tomb looks best , when you DON'T flash !!
see my lousy 3rd picture !
