The St. Stephan's cathedral is Vienna's landmark and is located on the main square of Vienna, which has unique combination of old and modern architecture. Next to the historical sightseeings you can find good restaurants, Viennese coffee&cakes, shopping area or take one of horse-drawn carriages for a ride around the city center.

We visited the Stephansplatz on a couple of occasions during our visit to Vienna, here it is a hive of activity day and night, on certain evenings there were free live outside viewing of the performance being held in the State Opera House, get there early for a seat, and take a coat to sit on, as the pavement can...

I strongly recommend Stephenplatz which is in the heart of Vienna. There are a lot of cafes, shops and activities around it. This area is very close to the other sightseeing points of Vienna. You may spend hours around.

Please pay an attention in this area, lots of people, lots of bad person. Put your bag in front of you. This place is amazing. Please do not buy chocolate in here. Very very expensive. The price could be more cheaper (half price) in Bila supermarket .

A walk along Stephensplatz will give you a good taste of central Vienna, and is a good starting point for your visit. There is every shop and restaurant you can imagine, as well as St. Stephan's. It is a bustling area that will give you a great flavor of the city.

Like any historic city centre one can find here a wienese gotic Church, called Stephan's Dome. The entrance is free so take a look, the interiors are nice. If you have money to spend, go on the Graben street where all the fancy brands have their expensive shops.There you can find Valentino, Armani&friends. For afordable prices go on Maria Hilferstrasse... 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.
