  • This beautiful square in the Centre of Vienna with two huge sources in the corners of the Palace with imposing sculptures. The charets pulled the horses are always in this square which makes it even more charming.

  • For me, the most beautiful square. In front of the main entrance to the Hofburg Palace, houses Roman ruins and the cars stops there confers a special charm. Is surrounded by traditional cafes of Vienna.

  • Michaelerplatz is a magnificent place that gives access to the Imperial Palace. Busy, especially by iconic cars of horses, has in its centre a former Roman road. In addition there are various sculptures, fountains and the Church of San Miguel. Behind this lies the central street Graben, and without a doubt, what more beauty brings to the plaza is the front of the Palace.

  • 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.
  • That was very different from what i saw before. Very nice place even in winter.
  • the central open wound disturbs the entire plaza and takes away from the real valuable historical experience. disgusting
  • 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.
  • Lovely place with a nice view of the Hofburg Palace.

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.
