Mesmerising sunset over Vienna from the St. Stephens Cathedral. Take the lift up to the South tower and watch the sun sink and colour the sky red behind the city’s hills. Plan your visit between August and May; the cathedral is open until 8-9pm and in June/July it could be difficult to catch the best light for a stunning shot. Make sure you leave the tower in time, otherwise you might be locked in (almost happened to me this year).
