The square is located between the natural history museum and the art history museum, with an impressive monument in the middle. It's also located by several u-bahn station and line, and tram line, so it's pretty easy to get to and from here. During our visit it was a very very hot sunny day and there was lots of people...

The square is located among the museums and at the head of a fantastic monument. It was impressive and if it were not for the hot weather, I would have spent much time in such fabulous place.

Spent almost a full day either walking about the park or just sitting and enjoying the views and the sun shine. It's in a good location and it's easy to just pop over after/before a museum visit.

In the middle of the square there is a large statue of Maria Theresa. Both sides of the square are two big museums - Kunsthistorische and Naturhistorische, and if you want the third side is over the street the MQ, the MuseumQuartier Vienna. The whole square is green, very nice grass and shrubs.

Standing on the Maria Theresa square, you'll get a good feel on Imperial Vienna in the 18th century: a big statue of the empress who had so many children (and who's daughter was decapitated as wife of the French King during the French revolution) - and left and right two of the major musea in Vienna which are the Museum...

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.
