Kärntner staße joins Stephansplatz and it is filled with locals and tourists alike. Cafes, restaurants and plenty shopping decorate this main street and the adjoining side streets.

All that today symbolizes Vienna has just expired from the golden period of the country and the rule of the Habsburgs. From the Austrian capital made the city of music, in which they created almost all significant composers of the world, such as Mozart, Brahms, Beethoven and Strauss. Their music can now be heard on every corner in Vienna, numerous... More

This is a pedestrian area with lots of shops, cafes and of course the magnificent St Stephan's Cathedral. You can even take a ride in a horse carriage. The good thing is that if your hotel is a little too far to walk there is a metro station close to the cathedral and that helps. Take time to have a... More

The first thing you will see, when you go to Stephansplatz, is the St Stephan's Cathedral. The square is always full of people (locals and tourists). There are plenty shops, cafes and restaurants but most of them are expensive and you can find much cheaper ones close-by. Do not miss the small side streets, there are many interesting spots to...

The heart of Vienna's central district, or Innere Stadt, is the Stephansplatz, which is a pedestrianised square dominated by the mighty gothic St Stephen's cathedral. Across the square from the cathedral and deliberately contrasting with it, is the tinted glass and fresh stone facade of the Haas Haus which is a shopping mall. Many intriguing streets lie close to Stephansplatz.... More

This is the center of Vienna and the square where the St. Stephen Cathedral is located. Everything in this square is worth seeing, including the station of the horse carriages on the side of the cathedral. The cathedral is one of the tallest in the world. It has massive walls with finely decorated edges and figures and extremely high gothic... More

What better way to spend a 7 hour layover in Vienna than to hop on the city/airport train (16 minute ride) and stroll through Vienna on a snowy January day. Stephanplatz is about a 15 minute walk from the station, and to get there you'll wander by buildings older than America, gardens like Eden and stores like in Dubai. Besides... More
