This is where it all starts...Stephansplatz. The Graben on one side, Kirtnerstrasse plus many other busy thoroughfares radiating out from this centre. The quality of the buskers in the near vicinity are the best in the world and even the smell of horse manure from the stylish carriages doesn't turn you off the many wonderful smells from the coffee houses...

Stephansplatz was the central hub of Vienna. There are lots of cafes, shops and people watching with the backdrop of the St. Stephens Cathedral. Definitely grab a table in one of the outdoor cafes and enjoy the view.

This is a fabulous spot. Everything in Vienna is centered around here. Dozens of shops, cafes and restaurants leave nothing to be desired. Many of the highlights of Vienna are not far from here and are easily walkable. Stephansplatz is a wonderful spot to people watch as well, so take time to enjoy it.

This is a terrific example of Viennese city centres, mixing a glorious old grand church within modern amenities and shopping. There are so many cafés and restaurants, and a great place to people watch. Don't just spend time shopping along the mall as there are some very exciting and elegant cafés, restaurants and shops in the lane ways too.

The Stephansplatz is the geographic center of Vienna. Home of the cathedral and dozens of cafes and department stores, Stephansplatz is a great place to start your city tour. The main attractions of the city are either here (Stephans Dom) or within a few minutes walk (Hofburg Palce, Spanish Riding School). On a given day this platz is lively with... More

I used to end my daily tour in Vienna by going back to the city center which is Stephansplatz of course you will not miss the huge and beautiful cathedral. Then you can just walk and do shopping,many cafe's and restaurants are around the square. You can also walk along the Graben strasse where you can see the Baroque column.... More

Easily reached by the U Bhan, the heart of Vienna is a must visit. Sarrounded by coffee shops ,food joints and branded outlets this is the place to feel the pulse of the city and not to forget that you are enveloped by historic buildings,monuments and churches. Many attractions are just a stone's throw away.A pedistrian zone makes the walk... More

St. Stephen's has to be the most inspiring Roman Catholic Cathedral short of the Vatican. Amazingly open access for a building that old, but the line for the bell tower can be a bit long. Stand inside and imagine the hundreds of years of history that have unfolded throughout Europe!
