The square is a beautiful piece of Vienna because you can admire the church of St. Stephen and all the beautiful buildings there. The architecture of the buildings and shops that are there to refer to another era. It's really beautiful. You have to visit the church, buy your decorations and the wonderful Mozart chocolates .

Walk outside the U-bahn/underground stop and you are smack in the middle of Viennas major shoppingstreet.

The exterior of the church is fairly interesting. However, after two other unsuccessful attempts to visit the church, we were finally able to get in, only to discover that most of the church is viewable only by admission fee, and each aspect is priced separately. There is a combined ticket for the price of something like 16 euros, but at that price, one might be expecting to see a seminal architectural piece such as the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. In general, a bit of a disappointment. Save your money and check out the beautiful interiors of the Peterskirche, just a couple of minutes' walk away.

We loved the exterior and interior of the beautiful church in this square, contrasted with high level shopping and dining.
