    This square is one of the entries of the Hofburg Palace but is not the main entrance. Is the entrance of this square you have access to the Sisi Museum. There are some ruins at the entrance and has intense traffic of cars.

    Really nice square, sumptuous and fascinating, just as you would expect from a city like Vienna. I love fountains and statues that show the twelve labors of Hercules.

    I would recommend seeing Michaelerplatz if anyone is considering! It was much quieter than other areas in Vienna, and it is very close to the National Public Library, so easy to go before/or after tha...  more »

    Can be very crowded at times. It's so much fun though to just wait and watch. All the horse carriages, the people, things happening.

    One of the historic squares of Wien. In this square you can see a lot of different palaces from different historic period like the Hofburg and the Looshaus. In the center of the square there are Romans ruins of the ancient city. Furthermore you can rent a carriage towed by horses.

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.
