I can only repeat what I've already said for the monument - impressive monument on an impressive square between two impressive museums that you must visit!

Very beautiful place. The statue is surrounded by two impressive buildings. Not crowded area on a warm summer day.

Must see! Beautiful place called Hofsburg. In the middle there was a monument of Maria Therese. Around two most famous museums and Hofsburg palace.

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...

The statues alone elevate this small area to 5-stars. The square is surrounded by buildings of staggering achitectural beauty. Plenty of places to chill and soak up the atmosphere. Plus you have the background accordion music, played by guys wearing horses heads!!! Not sure what that is about, but it is certainly bizarre to behold!! Wonderful square.

Stunning statue of Maria Theresa and a small square around it framed with even more stunning buildings are a nice site to visit 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.
