St. Stephen’s Cathedral (Photo Courtesy: Bwag)

It is at the religious and geographical heart of the city and the giant Pummerin bell features on television as it rings in the New Year. Vienna's Gothic masterpiece, commonly known as Stephansdom, has stood on this site since the 12th century, and today what remains is the Romanesque Riesentor (Giant Gate) and Heidentürme. From the outside of the cathedral, the first thing that will strike you is the beautiful tiled roof. Take good notice of the pulpit and the intricate carvings and embellishments on it. It is a shame that the architect is unknown. You will not get enough images here.
