Beautiful Cathedral!

Classic plaza in Vienna bustling with tourists and business. Just a nice place to see to get the feel of the city. Good gelato nearby.

I just love Vienna. We have been several times before Christmas for Gluwein, snow and culture. Stephanplatz is always bustling and great for shopping, but the cathedral wonderful. If you love Art Nouveau, museums, and Christmas, food and markets this is the place for you. Don't forget to visit the Third Man museum it is great! Also before Christmas there... More

We never tire of seeing cathedrals. We loved the openness of the pavilion surrounding Stephansplatz. Sometimes you feel like if you've seen one, you've seen them all, but this was even more spectacular with the organ and the beautiful stained glass. It was definitely tourist friendly with great write ups of what you were viewing.

This street is filled with all the fashion stores, Candies( including the famous Mozart chocolate), all kind of shoes stores. Crystal shops. All the way until it reached the Stephans Church. I suppose you can stay three to fours hours and not get all the shopping done.

I love Vienna, and Stephanplatz is the center of it all. This iconic area oozes of "old" Europe, and like all of Austria, is clean beyond belief.

Stephansplatz, the area in front of the St. Stephen's Cathedral, is where you probably find the most tourists. Although it's not as stinky as it used to be, the smell from the horse drawn carriages would make a blind man know where he is. Despite the classy stores around, the place has the ambiance of a market square. It's a... More

This part of town was the only part that I ever encountered anybody begging in all of Vienna. It is a great place to people watch and hang out and get some street food. In fact it was at a hot dog and kebab stall where a young boy was begging from all the customers, he approached me as I... More

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.
