Wanderers who’re visiting Vienna for the first time, take the metro/tram and head straight towards Stephensplatz. It’s easy to get lost in the crowd in this historic centre, but nothing will stop you from exploring the narrow lanes and admiring the interiors of coffee-houses.Dominating this square is Stephansdom, a 12th-century gothic church. The roof is styled in chevrons of yellow, blue and grey tiles, giving a contrast to the 1515 gothic stone that stands over the central nave inside the church.
It's one of the most important and busiest squares in the city center of Vienna. The streets are full of artistic artworks, shops selling everything from branded clothing to souvenirs, funky cafes and buildings with rich architecture.The main attraction here is St. Stephan's Cathedral which gives the place its name.
