This is the heart of Vienna and we started and ended every day there. It was full of life with a great atmosphere and the buildings were magnificent. Everything starts here, the horse drawn carriages, city tour busses and other sights are within walking distance. It's a city of such beauty that our 3 days was not long enough to... More

Going around the city center was a walk down history lane with many beautiful baroque and gothic buildings full of history. The shops were also good though Vienna is an expensive city. Nice to shop for souvenirs...

Old world charm and a wonderful place to see and be seen. Beware of aggressive touts selling tickets to all kinds of theater. With many cafes arounf the Platz, this is an excellent place to linger and take in Old Vienna

In Vienna places are named by numbers (starts from 1) according to their distance from centre. We can say Stephansplatz is Vienna 0. Stephansplatz is really touristic place and there are lots of restaurants, cafes and shops in there. We passed so many times from there while we are going to other places.

If you don't mind crowds, then check out this place. We enjoyed the shops, and the people watching, but it can be overwhelming with the masses of tour bus tourist.

The area was full of life but, even in August, not overcrowded. Unlike London, security was low key and made for a holiday atmosphere, with horse drawn carriages and cars calmly sharing the roads. Really good space to be in!

Places to shop, eat, sightsee is all in this area. There is transportation everywhere. You really can't go to Vienna without going to this area.

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.
