This is a beautiful stop on your way to museums as you are in the heart of everything, at walking distance to Hopfburg, the Museum of Natural History, the Museum of Art History, the Museums Quartier or Leopold Museum. Just stay for a second and try to breath in the beauty of imperial Vienna.

Right of the Ringstrasse, this is a big and beautiful area. Flanked by the Kunsthistorisches Museum and the Naturhistorisches Museum, Empress Maria Theresa's beautiful monument is the center piece of the Platz named after her. The structure is huge depicting Maria Theresa high above with her important supporters surrounding her. The horse statutes are very impressive also. There is beautifully... More

A beautiful square with a large statue of Maria Theresa in the centre, surrounded by two gorgeous museums.

Please be careful. Do not accept any rose from a stranger. It is a scam. I met an Italian woman gave me a rose but she wanted my donation for her sick family. If someone with roses in this garden... just stop go away. The garden itself is beautiful, clean, an comfort.

Maria Theresia Square is great square to walk around and admire the fabulous architectural buildings surrounding the Maria Theresia monument in the centre. The beautiful huge buildings have been converted to museums. We just enjoyed sitting in the square on a sunny fall afternoon and admired the sights.

Let me stay at the outset that Marie-Theresa is a dead ringer for Queen Victoria and similar to QV she had many children - interesting. This monument is significant not just as a consequence of it's size or detailed excellence or historic relevance or even setting but moreso because there are no buildings within a stones throw so it can...

Not worth three cheers. It is a good place for you to reset your bearings while on a walking tour. It is a good example of the over-reach of Maria Theresa. She was the empress who was almost always pregnant for two decades. 16 children is a lot for any royal. She fought two bloody wars against Prussia to maintain... More

there's nothing to see here except greenery and statues and fountains, but the statues, particularly of the Empress Maria Theresa, are stunningly complex, and the sculptures in the fountains almost define rococo art. With the Natural History museum on one side and the art museum on the other, this is a splendid place to while away time before either one... 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.
