5. St. Stephen’s Cathedral

During my visit to Vienna, I had the pleasure of exploring the city for two days, and one of the highlights was St. Stephen’s Cathedral.  St. Stephen’s Cathedral is not only a landmark of Vienna but is also the most important church in the city but also the most significant Gothic building in Austria. This magnificent church is not only the most famous in Vienna, but it’s also the tallest in the entire country. As I walked around the city, its majestic presence dominated the skyline, catching my eye from every corner.

The architecture of St. Stephen’s Cathedral is a beautiful blend of Romanesque and Gothic styles, but what truly captivated me was its vibrant and colorful tiled roof. To get a closer look at this architectural marvel, I ascended either the North or South Tower.

The cathedral is located just a 10-minute walk from the Vienna State Opera. I found out that it is open daily from 9 am to 5:30 pm, and the best part was that admission to the interior of the cathedral was free.

Visit The St. Stephens Towers

However, if I wanted to visit the towers, I needed to purchase an entrance ticket. It’s important to note that cash is required for the tower tickets, as there are no card terminals available.

I highly recommend visiting both towers. It won’t take up more than an hour of your time. However, if you only have the opportunity to visit one tower, I suggest choosing the North Tower. It’s easier to reach, and you’ll have a splendid view of both the cityscape and the magnificent roof.

My experience at St. Stephen’s Cathedral was truly memorable, offering a glimpse into Vienna’s rich history and architectural grandeur.

Graben, to me, is the epitome of Vienna’s prestigious shopping scene. It’s renowned for its glamorous retail stores and mouth watering restaurants. This iconic street has a rich history, dating all the way back to the 12th century, and its charm is amplified by the baroque and renaissance-style buildings that line its paths.

When strolling along with Graben, one can’t help but be enthralled by the incredible variety of prominent fashion brands on display. From Hermès to Max Mara and Swatch, the choices are endless.

One place that I highly recommend visiting is Julius Meinl am Graben, a high-end grocery store and café that offers delectable chocolates, exquisite wines, champagnes, and unique gifts. What’s more, Graben is conveniently located near Vienna’s notable landmarks such as the Equitable, the Jewish Museum of the City of Vienna, and the awe-inspiring St. Stephen’s Cathedral.

Another bustling shopping street worth exploring is Kärntner Strasse. It’s a lively and vibrant pedestrianized street that has been a shopper’s paradise since 1974. Here, you can discover a selection of internationally recognized brands like Zara, H&M, GUESS, and Hugo Boss.

Where To Stay In Vienna

1. Innere Stadt – Best location to stay in Vienna for first-timers

It’s the most central district in the city as the name translates to ‘Inner City’, so you’ll be in a great location to get around and visiting nearby attractions. If you only have a weekend in Vienna, staying in this area will save you a lot of time you would otherwise spend commuting.

This area is where you’ll find some of Vienna’s most iconic tourist spots, including The Hofburg, St Stephen’s Cathedral, and the Austrian National Library. The Vienna State Opera is also located in the city center, and if a show’s on during your stay, then you definitely need to visit for the experience.

Original Sacher Torte

In a hilarious twist of fate, the world’s most famous cake, the Original Sacher-Torte, came to be.

With a sarcastic farewell from the Chancellor, Franz rose to the challenge. The result? A moist chocolate cake with apricot jam, covered in velvety chocolate glaze.
