It is a lovely place to walk around. Nice old buildings in the middle of a busy city centre. If you are in Vienna and you like classic architecture. I suggest you have a walk through the historic city centre of Vienna.

Not very interesting per se, but you'll end up here whenever walking around central Vienna. Car-free.

Stephensplatz is the centre of old Vienna. It is a vast pedestrian mall that runs from the Hof Palace at one end to the Danube Canal (and the Rindstrasse) at the other. Here you can people watch to your hearts content - there are buskers, beggars, bus-loads of tourists on walking tours, everyday Viennese going about their daily business, shoppers... More

Stephansplatz is a good location for those who are visiting Vienna for the first time. Stephansplatz is located very central and therefore very touristy. It's not the cheapest place for food and drinks in Vienna, but it has good connections to reach other places of interest quickly, such as Karlsplatz, Schwedenplatz, Hofburg, House of parliament... Shopping malls, souvenier shops, street... More

I don' think my words would justify a visit to the place. Its simply breath taking. A walk on the streets around would give you a feel of the old days but the brand outlets on those streets would make you feel a part of the modern world.

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.
