After the visit of Stephansdom enjoy again the view

Once you have visited the cathedral, you have many facilities to have a rest, a melange and enjoy the view of the cathedral. Take your time to appreciate and taste Vienna

This is a nice area to walk around in Vienna, although it is always crowded because it is in the center, it is also near the cathedral which wellcomes many tourists. Nearby - so not exactly in Stephanplaz you can find many nice places to ahve lunch ro dinner the traditional way.

First time you step out of the Metro station, you'd think half the people of Vienna are here. It's arguably the area with the most foot traffic in the city. Lots of shops, most of which are expensive (hey, it's Europe). But if you look carefully around, you'd see places you would want to buy stuff from. There are a... More

The centre of this most fascinating of European capitals, the Stephensplatz is a joy to behold with the Stephansdom itself at its heart. The other buildings nearby, both new and old are well worth exploring. If only there were fewer fake Mozarts trying to sell tickets to every concert going!

This is really the centre of Vienna and there is a lot going on as there are many people. It was near our hotel and we passed there several times and were offered many tickets to attractions and concerts by people who looked like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It is just a busy place with a lot going on and the... More

Vienna is one of my favorite cities in Europe - great museums, great restaurants, castles, interesting architecture and more. Stephansplatz and the church are pretty much a must when you visit Vienna. I recommend you try the worst stand in the plate - the cheese worst is yummy.

Nothing massively special but a pleasant enough public space with good public transport. Pass through it but it's not a destination.

This square is considered as the heart of the city of Vienna. Practically it is not a large square itself but is created from the crossroads of 4 pedestrian streets that corcubscribe St. Stephans cathedral. It is full of fine shops and cafes and you can have great walks there. The cathedral itself is a masterpiece of gothic architecture and... More

I arrived by metro in from of Stephansdom and after visiting the cathedral, I strolled Stephansplatz. It was not as crowded as many European plazas just after work on a nice spring evening. Not as I expected it to be - wall-to-wall people. There was space to walk and take pictures. So many beautiful old buildings here. Plenty of shops... More

It is the historic center of Vienna, the main attraction is the Stephansdom (st. Stephans cathedral). The walking streets are Kartner strasse and Graben and both have very elegant shops mostly designer clothes, jewelry as well as touristic stuff. Very nice buildings and statues that tell a lot of history. On a sunny day it is a real pleasure to... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
