A place full of people and activities. Food and souvenirs everywhere. You'll see horse carriage passing through even when it was drizzling. Truly a centre point for activities. Got myself some delicious chocolates and nice souvenirs. Hey! The staff here are friendly, too.

You can't come to see Vienna without venturing into its lively centre. Positioned around the lovely ( being renovated ) Stephansdom Cathedral, a lively pedestrian area filled with cafes and shops. Gives a real sense of old Vienna if you can get away from the commercial aspects. Unlike towns like Krakow in Poland which restricts commercial signage and frontages on... More

I like the position near the Stefansdom in city center I dislike all the souvenir shop around but that's where they make money and I like the FIAKER(horses)

While visiting Vienna's center, we walked several times through the square. It has a very nice scale and great life.

This is a nice European Square. It is especially lovely at Christmas with all of the lights. The windows and stores all decorated makes it worth the trip. Great shops and coffee houses to take a break.

This should be the focal point of your Vienna exploitations! Lovely square - just avoid the touts who are handily dressed up in historic costumes making them easy to spot! Do your research on here before engaging with them - from what I heard the standard tactic appears to be that if you sign on the dotted line they will... More

Nice for a trip if you have not been. Great for photographers. Got frustrated outside the cathedral with ticket touts - they like to harass you, and harass you, and harass you... That said it's worth a visit and easy to get to on the public transport circuit. If you are looking for the old manner shop to buy some... More

If you love shops, window shopping, people watching, and perhaps grabbing some street food, this is a MUST DO. I ended up doing a bit more shopping that I should have, but it was so much fun. Also, if you can, go at different times, you really get a different experience. I was a 30-something girl walking around by myself... More
