Stephansdom - Easter Mass

We happened upon the Easter Mass at Stephansdom, which was a truly special experience.  I'm not overly religious, but it was still inspiring to see the mass of people gathered.  Additionally, the music was incredible with a full orchestra and choir performing.  There were several times when the congregation would sing or the organ would play that I literally got chills.  It was a very moving experience.  We spent about an hour in Stephansdom, and mostly just watched people and enjoyed the music.  They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I'll let my pictures and video speak for this experience.

TV screens everywhere so everyone could see what was happening

After 343 steps, we made it to the top!
Stephansplatz - I love watching people from above.  It's so fascinating to see how people use spaces.
