A huge square which you can start with in the morning to have a stop at Queen Theresa status and by crossing over the road, you can continue to have a stop at the "winter palace" of Queen Theresa and from there you can continue into the busy shopping square of Vienna

In the middle of the square is the Empress Maria Theresia monument, complete with four military generals at her feet (as it should be ) erected 100 years after she died in 1780. Her title came from marrying Emperor Francis I. They had 16 children, nine died early. (She asked the Doctor what she should do not to become pregnant... More

The square is between two museums and two very busy roads but it's peaceful, clean and pretty. In the middle is an enormous tribute to Marie Theresa, an incredible and imposing tribute to a much revered lady. You really can't visit Vienna without visiting the square.

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.

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.
