A busy part of the Inner City

Busy yet the flow of people went smoothly. Peaceful, clean and public transport is accessible. Restaurants are just easy to find. Catholic churches are just few blocks away.

We really enjoyed the centre of Vienna. We wandered around for a long time, but kept coming back to this part of the city.

The heart of Vienna it seems, amazing church that needs a visit - and if you have time go up the 382 steps to the top of the church!

Stephansplatz is the large square at the heart of the historic inner city of Vienna with the huge and wonderful Cathedral Church of St Stephen dominating it. The square itself is vibrant and charming - with hundreds of local people and tourists walking and cycling by. There are numerous shops, cafes, restaurants and other buildings of interest within the square... More

This is the centre of town and very vibrant with its cafes and bars and live music if you are lucky as we were.

The "Times Square" of Vienna! All sorts of shops, coffee houses, cafes, restaurants, bars & a literal "beehive of activity" If you can't find it here, it probably doesn't exist in Vienna

Stephansplatz sits right in the heart of Vienna. The moment you walk out of the Stephansplatz U-Bahn station, you can feel the energy of this lively and yes touristy area. The beautiful St. Stephen's Cathedral is the most dominant structure and worth a visit. The area is heavy on restaurants and bars, many with outdoor seating, as well as places... More

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.
