The center

The center of the old Vienna town. As a tourist you cannot miss it. Carriages with horses, guides, shops and the Cathedral.

Vienna is an amazing city, there is amazing art museums and it is a very easy city to maneuver. One can not go wrong with visiting this historic city of Europe, the coffee houses are amazing and gives you an opportunity to enjoy some downtime while soaking up some culture.

All the tourists in Vienna are coming to Stephansplatz, as it's a landmark of the city. You will definite walk along Karntner Strasse, in order to buy some souvenirs, or to take a coffee break. You won't miss this square.

Stunning displays and shops, but you have to have deep pockets. Is a collection of the world's most famous brands closely spaced together.

I think it is the most beautiful place in Vienna. Very beautiful building and architecture. There are many people in every moment, many restaurants, shops, places where you can buy sausages, icecream, souvenirs. I liked it very much.

You'll probably visit it on your way to St. Stephen's Cathedral. I guess you won't see anything amazing there :)

The best thing about this platz is the medieval church and that it's in a pedestrian zone. It's also in old town Vienna, a city I love, but all in all it's just another platz. More of an artery through the city than anything else. There's a main U-Bahn station here with a connection to the East Train station -... 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.
