Great area for window shopping and grabbing a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. We were very found of a little café on the 2nd floor across from St Stephen’s. Great pedestrian access, lots of people. A must for people watchers!

The Stephansplatz is the heart of Vienna and has large hub streets radiating from it. These house many wonderful stores and restaurants and connect to other city landmarks. With the Cathedral, this is a must see place.

This plaza surrounds one of the tallest cathedrals in the world, Stephansdom. It is the literal and figurative heart of the city, so you'll inevitably encounter this place while roaming through Vienna.

The historic city centre of Vienna. Aesthetic and imperial architecture at it's best. Houses the historic St Stephen' church. Easily accessed by local train and a favourite haunt for tourists and locals.
