Things to see in Graben

The street itself is a sight to admire, with the gorgeous Plague Column at its center. This Baroque sculpture features a union of angels and cherubs in stone, with a golden Virgin Mary sitting atop. Even more striking is the famous St. Stephen’s Cathedral, or “Steffl” as it’s known to the locals. Constructed on the ruins of two former churches, one dating back to the 12th century, this grand cathedral stands 446 feet tall and has long been a beloved symbol of the city. Stepping inside, you’ll find breathtaking Baroque pieces, particularly within the altars. The cathedral is also famous for its tombs and crypts, with the tomb of Emperor Frederick III on the main floor and many more emperors and leaders buried in the Ducal Crypt, available to visit on a guided tour. Finally, don’t miss out on the spectacular Hofburg to the south. The imperial palace perfectly showcases the elegance and finesse that Vienna is so famous for.
