Inside the CathedralInside St. Stephen’s Cathedral there are 18 altars of varying sizes and importance, with the High Altar and the Wiener Neustädter Altar in the north nave being the most significant. Visitors will also be able to see the Gothic pulpit, the burial place of Prince Eugene of Savoy, and relics of St. Valentine. There’s also an impressive organ, currently being restored.
Catacombs and CryptVisitors can also buy tickets to other areas of the church, including the catacombs and crypts, where visitors will see the ducal sarcophagi of the Habsburg family as well as bones from ordinary Viennese people which were moved to the catacombs in the 18th century.
The Largest Bell in Austria: The PummerinThe new Pummerin has been hanging in the North Tower/Eagle Tower (Adlerturm) since 1957. It is the third largest free-swinging bell in a church tower and is only sounded on special occasions and at the turn of the year. Part of the casting material comes from melted down Ottoman cannons from the sieges of Vienna.
