This is a large pedestrian area, filled with label shops, souvenir shops and restaurants. The prices for souvenirs, however, are higher than in museum shops (t-shirts and candy were around 5 euros cheaper in the Schonbrunn museum shop).

This is the heart of Vienna. The church dominates the square and is surrounded by shops, restaurants and if you visit in late November, Christmas markets! The quaint, narrow streets have something for everyone whether it's architecture, atmosphere, shopping or eating. Take a tram or u-bahn to get here and then explore on foot. You can easily explore the old... More

Majestic, one way to describe the Stephansplatz square, the heart of Vienna. The church, the shopping area around it, the small (or big) coffee shops and restaurants around it everything oozes class. Don’t forget Vienna was the Capital of an Empire, not that long ago. If in Vienna, find the time and walk around this square.

It was way back in 2008 that my husband and I spent the first week of January in Vienna but it's a vivid memory that keeps coming back to me. We forturnately stayed at the Hotel Royal because it was located within steps of "Stephansplatz". Stephansplatz (St Stephen's Square) is the heart of Vienna. In this magical square in the... More

This square is a throbbing hub.With grandiose St. Stephen's Cathedral at its center, the thriving square is a major hub in the old city,and it is usually packed with tourists. It's also a place where old meets modern, with some oft he old buildings from the imperial era still standing around its perimeter, cheek to jowl with modern aluminum and... More

If you're looking to do some shopping, this is the place. Walked through on our way to St Stephens. I was disappointed in the lack of restaurants in the area. Mostly cafés and Asian food. The street vendor sold some great sausage though. The worst part is the solicitors and the gypsies begging.

the platz itself is a must, with the amazing church, but the sellers around it destroys the experience. They stops you, and tells you about the concerts to sell tickets , and that's ok, but we declined, polite, and this seller became so rude, almost swore at us, and pulled the cheap and map he had just given us, out...
