"The checked church" Stephansdom - St. Stephen's Cathedral Tip by ayesh


Yes, the first church you should see is the Stephansdom. It is the most prominent sight of Vienna with its remarkable roof and incredibly extensive stonework inside. Specially take notice all the delicate figures in the stone pillars.
The trip to the top of the South Tower (entrance outside) is quite nice, but a bit dissapointing after having seen the Notre Dame in Paris, because the stairs end in a closed room (343 steps).

A must-do-activity is the tour through the catacombs. Millions of bones can be seen, as well as some iron pots with the intestines of some very important bishops!!

Address: Stephansdomplatz 1
