  • The Castle gate is located between the Heroe's square and the Ringstrasse (ring of Castle) and hero is also called gate. It is a massive well-preserved transit gateway.

  • Resigns this gate behind the building before (national library, Hofburg, heldenplatz,...) and behind it (art museum...) are, a proper function can no longer be seen, today it's old and well preserved just a passage,.

  • Triumfatoram in honour of the victory over the French troops of Napoleon in 1813 year at Leipzig. On the outside the gates of the castle there is an inscription which reads-Justice Framework rules! Very pompous composition of five arches, which opens the magic Hofburg.

  • It is the main gate for the Hofburg's palace and commentates the victorious battle against Napoleon. This is a landmark in Vienna and it is worth to go through and appreciate the merge of the gate with the sunset.
  • 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 wall which has now become the Ringstrasse, the gate commentates the victorious battle against Napoleon.
  • Stunning gates well worth a walk around.
  • This is a great historical spot, a must when visiting Viena.
  • Walking through the historical places, you cannot miss this gate...
