But don't let this dissuade you from coming! And really, why would it, you are one of us! The museums are excellent, but it's the grounds, topiary, and statues that take your breath away. It's hard to put into words what must have been the time, for an Emperor and Empress to have these grounds commissioned. You'll should feel a... More

A really nice area to take time out and relax with lots of cafes, great place to get lunch or just a drink and dessert. Kids enjoyed the large seating areas as well.

This is more a cluster of museums and artist areas around a central square. We went in the bank holiday so many shops and workshops were closed but the museums were open. There are a couple of cafes there too when you need a rest. Worth a visit.

The archetecture of the buildings was really cool to look at. Each buikding was different and even the seating was different and fun to look at. We visited the museumsquartier in the spring. A bit cold and the fountain/water reservior was dry so it wasn't as picturesque as the pictures I see here. Cafes weren't open nor was there ice... More

I loved that so much is available within a short distance and the buidlings are all magnificent. We especially loved the Leopold exhibits and museum and hanging out in the outside cafe there

It's really impressive how the viennese thought and accomplished the idea of putting the majority of the museums in the same place. It's a block of buildings full of museums and some cafes to sit later. Near the block there are the Hofburg palaces as well as the famous museums of Art and Natural History.

We liked having the museums altogether but we didn't like how expensive they were. We got 'museum fatigue' before we got our money's worth

This is a bit like the area I saw in Amsterdam, but with more museums closer to each other, and a long line of shops on the side. Great place to be.

I visited the Leopold museum and some shops. If you are tired of walking there is plastic divans on the yard.

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.
