One of my (many) favourite things about Vienna is coming out of the U-Bahn at Stephansplatz. The exit of the U-Bahn is overshadowed by the enormous Stephansdom Cathedral. The elaborate, gothic building looms over a large square leading to a main shopping district, several cafes and restaurants. It's marvelous! We spent lots of time exploring the catacombs below the cathedral. They were actually pretty creepy. It is definitely worth the 4 euro to see the 2 crypts, the tomb of the hapsburgs, and of course the millions of bones piled on top of each other, stacked meticulously by prisoners (yuck!). And our tour leader had the most stereotypically perfect german accent. It kind of made our day.
