My wife and I stayed in Vienna for about a week for our honeymoon. We enjoyed Stephansplatz very much. Despite the efforts of locals, St. Stephens Cathedral was swarming in tourists from all over the world. Still, the area around the cathedral was charming and...More

You're at the center of Vienna!!!! If...More

This is "THE" place to visit in Vienna. It's big, clean and safe. The Stephandom is the big attraction here but there are restaurants, coffee shops, outdoor ice cream cafes, public transportation, hotels and more. If you can, stay at the Hotel am Stephanplatz which...More

Is it safe to say the most comparable thing to Stephansplatz is that of Times Square in New York. Large crowds of people, high end shopping, some brilliant street entertainers and an infectious vibe and atmosphere! The area is so easy to get lost in...More

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
