Nice little square

When we went here there was a little Christmas market, and a laser display on the buildings there. Nice to make a short stop and drink a mulled wine :P

Not the largest Christmas market but one of the best organised. Sandwiched in between two stunning and mirrored image buildings..

This is a wonderful square to visit. It is close by to many museums, buildings and other Viennese attractions. The greenery is lovely and it is great walking around the area. During the holiday season you can check out the christmas market in the square and enjoy this special festive atmosphere.

The statue at Maria Theresian Platz is very impressive. Maria Theresa ruled the Hapsburg empire from Austria all the way east to hungary, even when she was pregnant, from Vienna. All the other monuments are very close from here. You can see this while walking through Vienna.

Wonderful square with nice and a trimmed greenery and beautiful stay over there. Good for photography and always open. During winter you can see one of the city's best Xmas markets at the square!

The statue in Maria Theresien Platz is very impressive especially if you learn the history of her rule. Maria Therese ruled the empire (unheard of for a woman) while being pregnant for most of her rule, having 16 children (over 20 pregnancies). It is said that she ruled from bed, in fact she has a "Throne Bed" at the Schoenbrunn... More

We came to visit the platz after visiting the Leopold museum. The Christmas booths are open and it is a pleasure to walk around, try some chestnuts, some special Christmas hot drinks, cakes and cookies

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.
