St. Stephen's Cathedral

As with most cathdrals the site of St. Stephens goes way back the middle ages
Unfortunately the church was damaged during WW2 and had to be rebuilt

The view of the cathedral from the other side of the spire

The church is being cleaned and here is a close up of a cleaned section

The crazy zig zag roof of St. Stephens

An astrological clock with the Zodiac because Christianity and Astrology are linked ?

The interior of the cathedral

On the north side the coats of arms of the City of Vienna and of the Republic of Austria

On the south side the double-headed eagle is the symbol of the Habsburg dynasty
