Going up the stairs at the Stephansdom tower

Taking the stairs at the Stephansdom tower is a must, if you want some adventure!

There are several places in Vienna where you can look over the city from a bird’s perspective. The oldest one of them is the highest point of our Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral). Did you know that you can walk up the tower via the stairs at the Stephansdom? 

How many steps lead up to this point and is it worth it? 

You can climb the stairs of the South Tower to the height of over 60 metres, almost half of the tower’s total height. 343 steps lead to the top, be aware that there is no elevator. But if your health allows it and you want some adventure, you should really grasp this chance. You will be rewarded with a breathtakingly beautiful view over Vienna.

Those of you that don’t want to or can’t take the steps, can explore the North Tower .There you’ll be able to use an elevator. The interesting thing on this tower is the largest church bell of Austria. The bell is called “Pummerin“.

If you don’t want to go up on either one of the towers, you should book one of our private tours. Click here for more information
