Its spiky tower is an impressive, very recognisable symbol of Vienna.
A map of Viennese history.
Churches abound in the capital of Catholic Austria, but the Stefansdom is different not just in being the seat of Roman Catholicism in the country but in that it's also a symbol of Vienna city and virtually a map of the city's history. Easily recognisable by its spiky 137-metre (450-foot) tower, it began as a Romanesque church in 1147, undergoing expansion as the centuries went by. Its interior holds many of the mortal remains of Habsburg dynasty members, and was the site of events such as the funeral of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, one of Vienna's most legendary figures.
