Walking around the city, people watching, seeing the churches, and stopping into shops is what to do in the main square of Vienna. I'm sure you'll pass through it at least once.

Towering over the city centre is the spire of St Stephen's Cathedral. The outside is being cleaned and a lot of finery has emerged. Cobblestones and ancient alleys meet high fashion, tourist throngs and horse drawn carriages in this wonderful setting.
