A lovely cathedral undergoing restoration. Even though sunday mass was taking place you are able to observe from the back or attend the service.

An amazing building, considering its year if construction. The spire is visible from miles away. Doesn't take long to go around and there is substantial building work going on to the side of it, but worth a look - it's free.

The exterior of this magnificent Gothic structure (unfortunately much of it was covered in scaffolding during our visit) is magnificent -- an incredible achievement today let alone centuries ago. The interior is also incredible lavish, but you have to pay to see any of it...More

It's the city's most important Gothic edifice with its 137-meter-high spire and richly decorated roof. It is noticeable as one enters the cathedral the late Romanesque giant door. It has a spacious interior with life-sized statues. much adornments and the many chapels. Altogether it is...More

I went once at about 9pm. There wasn't a wow factor in the lighting, but I guess it's an individual's taste. If it's not too cold, it would be nice to walk around as there definitely are fewer people around. Nearby shops... More
Why do you say the Stephansdom is in a poor physical condition? It is a very old building, and under almost constant repair. Having been reduced to a shell by American bombing, and subsequently rebuilt, it is a tribute to the skilled workmanship that has restored it to its former beauty. Sensitive and appropriate restoration, with respect for history, has preserved an iconic feature of the city. Renewal would be akin to vandalism.
