Absolutely splendid, but one can't help but sense the absence of a raison d'être. How much better if, instead of hordes of tourists with digital cameras, their Imperial Majesties were here, riding in a golden coach.

We just happened to see it on the way to the Kunsthistorisches Museum in the Museum Quarter. It's difficult to miss this square. You would have to pass by it (or through it) at some point if you're visiting the Natural History or Art History Museum. There's a huge statue of Maria Theresa in the middle of the square surrounded... More

A nice park, set in the center of the historic district and wedged between museums. Not really as impressive as other squares in Europe. Statuary and fountains a bit overdone baroque. You are going to see it anyhow if you do any sightseeing.

Visited this monument twice and still found it impressive. Several ways to take photos of the largest Maria Theresa monument. A must for your photo album.

It is worth paying attention to the four marble fountains "Tritons and nymphs", located near the Monument in the center of four large lawns. It works by sculptors A. Schmidgruber, H. Haerdtl, E.Hofmann. Was built in 1887 – 1890

The Maria Theresa Square is situated just across the Ringstrasse and is surrounded on three sides by the Kunsthistorische Museum, Naturhistorisches Museum and the art museums of Museumsquartier, and it is the location of the impressive Maria Theresa Monument. The square is quite stately, centred by the huge 44 ton bronze statue of Empress Maria, which stands 19 meters off... More

I enjoyed seeing this square because of its symmetry and the many sculptures and small fountains found there. Of course the monument to Maria Theresa was very beautiful and impressive.

As everywhere in old Vienna you will find great old trees, green grass, flowers. Vienna is one of the European cities where parks are one of the most impressive experiences.

You can't miss Maria Theresa Square with the statue of the Emperess and the Art Museum and Natural History Museum. A must see.
