This is an impressive square which is the starting point point for all museums and also tours. Here stands the great statue of Maria Theresa in all its regal splendour. Surrounding this platz are all imperial buildings. There are a number of gardens where you can spend looking around.

I was in Vienna for only 3.5 hours on a city tour with my cruise but I stopped at the MariaTheresen Platz to go to the Christmas market. It was a lovely space between two museums. I imagine it would be just as nice to visit in nice weather – a great place to relax and enjoy beautiful Vienna. It... More

A large square that connects several of the most important museums in Vienna, located in the former Imperial Stables. The buildings of Natural History Museum and Art History Museum are almost identical and in the center of the square there is the large statue of Maria Theresa.

A big square connecting 3 big museums. With a nice statute in middle. Had a new years market whereby one could drink mulled wine and try traditional dishes having a break between visiting the museums. Lovely place to sit relax and enjoy the view of some aristocratic buildings.

We spent here NYE . Nice market. Commercial of course as all markets but one could get the feeling and see all firework celebrations. Worth visiting if you wish to avoid the crowded silvertrail downtown Also its a nice square to settle for a quick break between the two museums

This square is amazing and is devoted to Maria Theresa who is depicted in a far more superior status than her husband!

This market seems to be one of the last to close up after 25th December. There are about 40-50 stalls and can be accessed from both sides of Maria Theresa Square. Definitely worth a visit to drink warm wine out of the traditional pink, pig mugs at least.

This place is just outside of the Natural History Museum (Naturhistorisches Museum) and in opposite of Hofburg Palace. When we are there, the area is more interesting since there are Christmas Market which contains many small shops around.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
