St. Stephen's Cathedral Vienna

First mentioned in a document in 1137, the cathedral is a landmark and the most important Gothic building in Austria.

 

Vienna's St. Stephen's Cathedral stands for many things: it is a world-famous cultural asset and a building that needs to fear no international comparison. It is THE national landmark of Austria and a symbol of Austrian identity.

The building is 109 meters long and 72 meters wide. The cathedral is one of the most important Gothic buildings in Austria. Parts of the late Romanesque predecessor building from 1230/40 to 1263 are still preserved and form the west façade, flanked by the two Heidentürme, which are about 65 meters high.

In total, the St. Stephen's Cathedral has four towers: with 136,4 metres, the south tower is the highest, the north tower was not finished and is only 68 metres high.
