The most important religious building in Austria's capital, St. Stephen's Cathedral has hosted many important events in the nation's history and has, with its multi-colored tile roof, become one of the city's most recognizable symbols.
Take an elevator up the bell tower or climb the 246 feet (75 meters) and you'll get an up close look at the glazed roof tiles.
After climbing all 246 feet (75 meters) of the bell tower, St. Stephen's Cathedral offers a historic glimpse of Vienna.
As the city's most recognizable symbols, the tower jettisons toward blue skies. The view from above also provides a contrasting observation between modern day luxury and gothic architecture. On this particular day, the horses below seemed aligned with the shops across the street to bring about a feeling of soaring like a crow above the city. The tour of the tombs below felt so ironic after experiencing this unforgettable sight.
