Stephansdom's south tower

Stephansdom 3

The south tower is 445 feet high and took over 65 years to build, from 1368 to 1433. And it's probably been under renovation ever since that time. (I'm being a little sarcastic here, but it does seem like it requires a lot of upkeep.) For a small fee, you can climb the 343 steps to the lookout point. It's supposed to be a nice view, but the view is "somewhat restricted" according to the cathedral's website due to renovation.
