  • 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...
  • A spectacular gate with plenty of flags on it !

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
