Worth a quick peek or stop for a coffee if you are strolling round the inner City or Ringstrasse. In the 16th and 17th century, lots of private palaces sprang up here, and in nearby Rennngasse, to be close to the Hoffburg. Most are now...More

Freyung is a triangular shaped public square in Vienna. It is just northwest of Am Hof Square. Its a neat place to spend a bit of time during trips to Vienna. Historically the square was just beyond the walls of a Roman fortification at this...More

Really fun, kinda touristy but not in a cringe-y way. It's mostly centered around handcrafted egg ornaments but it has a lot of food too. Get a punch at the bar, walk around, sip it, look at all the eggs, listen to some casual music,...More

Smaller and less upscale than the Palace Easter market, but worth the visit. A great place to just walk around and be a tourist.

One of the most historic locations in Vienna. Amazing architecture all around. Very near Hofburg and other famous places.

We just happened to stumble upon this square which is beautiful! Totally free unless you want to enter any of the buildings and is definitely worth a visit. Really gives you a taste of old Viennese architecture.
