Nice place. There are a lot of restaurants and shops. You may spend here hours. It is the centre of the Vienna. If you go to Vienna , you must go there at least once.

Definitely worth visiting but there's no avoiding tourists at this place. To avoid the crowds,just branch off into some side streets for a meal or a great coffee without noise. Stephansplatz has conveniently located Metro entrance just next to the cathedral so you cannot miss it.

There is of course st stephens cathedral and the shopping streets radiating of this platz. Take a look at the history of the restoration of st stephans at the back of the platz near the entrance to the tower. Great views from doco hotel or skybar

Its a bustling centre of vienna. Great for people watching. plenty of benches to just sit and soak in the atmosphere. there are people busking, singing opera, and playing musical instruments. many shops and restaurants around as well. The cathedral is just a short walk from here.
