The arcaded gateway is the entry to the Imperial quarter leading to Heldenplatz, Neue burg and Hofburg. It was build as a triumphal arch to celebrate Austrian victory over Napoleon's forces. Difficult to miss because of its prominent location, the gate is definitely worth a...More

The gates are large and stone. They are imposing. The arches give a nice touch. And the view behind them through the gates is pretty special.

Not sure why, but this was always one of the first impressions of Vienna for me. Probably because, apart from being dominant by itself, this gate has such a potent surrounding which makes the whole picture much more vivid. It separates the outter city and...More

These large stone built gates were first erected and then opened in 1824 on the site of older fortifications which Napoleon's army believed were now obsolete. They separate the Burgring road from the Heldenplatz ( Heroes Square ) and the Hofburg Place beyond. They are...More

Burgtor, or literally the outer gates of the Hofburg palace and Heldenplatz (Heroes' square), in front of the palace is a series of arched gates. The gates have roads and footpaths passing through. There are still some huge wooden doors to the gates.

Like many European cities, a triumphant gate to march through is not uncommon. There has always been a desire for such arches, from Romans, to Napoleon's Arc de Triomphe in Paris and the BrandenburgerTor. The Äußeres Burgtor is the Habsburg's. Built into the former city...More

This lovely and unique gate separates two square, and while having an aqueduct look, it is not really one.

This is a gate that connects Maria-Theresien-Platz with Heldenplatz. If you're in Vienna, you will go at least one time through.
