It is a public square in Vienna's Inner City with a large statue of Empress Maria Theresia. Two fantastic museums, the Museum of Art History and the Museum of Natural History are facing each other form the sides of the square. In between there are greens.

What a lovely square. My husband and I walked past here the other day, and we were so impressed, we stopped to take it all in. We recommend making a detour through here if you're out for a stroll!

What an amazing garden. Beautiful buildings on both sides. Beautifully maintained. Walk through the gardens from one end to the next. Everything seems to be connected in Vienna.

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.
