Nice but crowdy

Maybe it was the time of year, but this place just looked grubby when we walked around. Lots of tourists (I know we were one of them) and maybe we need to go back when it wasn't so cold or wet. Suspect I would have enjoyed it more in better weather but the local guides/assistants were all on hand ready... More

The first day we woke up in Vienna we went downtown and had a fruit juice sitting just in front of Stephan Platz, and we could admire the huge Cathedral! Then, we went in and had a look at the usual ostentation of these places. There's a gift shop to remain blessed for the rest of our lives. Lovely building!!

Magnificent cathedral and other buildings and monuments. Not a particularly open square as many 'dom-platz' are but on New Year's Eve it's crammed with stage, food, entertainment. At other times great shops are close by.

If you're looking for a taste of true European architecture, there can be no better place to wander with camera in hand.

The heart of the tourist centre of town a great place to get off the metro to start to wander around many of the main city centre attractions or go shopping.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood 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 centre. 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.
