Came across the square by accident. My husband and I had been walking around Vienna, to see the many beautiful monuments, statues, parks etc. This place is lovely. Peaceful. There's also a couple of places to refill your cold water bottle, which is handy in hot weather.

Very pretty and clean but it's a small little area. We saw it from our carriage ride and then went back to take pictures. Don't break your legs rushing over there. It's a tourist trap like everything else in " new" Vienna city square area

These two palaces facing each other is a lovely area to relax with well-kept gardens, so opulent and romantic. Well worth seeking out.

Vienna is a beautiful city with many tourist attractions worth a visit. The Maria Theresa Square is certainly worth a visit for its architecture and gardens.

With lots of diggers and screened of areas I was a little disappointed with regards taking of photos as the screens or diggers were getting in the way. It was a very well maintained area with shaped bushes, fountains and statues.

Recommend a Vienna tour with a guide as there is so much history here, this square is between two museums, matching domes. It was beautiful and close to the Museums Quarter.

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.
