Stephansplatz, Vienna

(4,000+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
Located in the center of the city, Stephansplatz is named after St. Stephen's Cathedral, which you'll find in the square, and is bordered on the west and south by shopping streets Graben Strasse and Karntner Strasse. Aside from Vienna's famous cathedral, you'll find Haas-Haus, an architectural marvel of old and new, and Stock-im-Eisen, a tree trunk that has had hundreds of nails hammered into it from as far back as the Middle Ages. This bustling hub is a microcosm of the city and Vienna's energy. Enjoy the many cafes lining the streets, browse in independent boutiques, and savor Austrian delicacies in nearby restaurants.

  • On the one hand, the Gothic Cathedral. On the other hand, the glass Tower Haas. Between the two, a pastry (Konditorei Aida). A perfect summary of the city of Vienna, where history and modernity mingle, while Viennese gastronomy is not well far. An excellent starting point for a tour in the first district.
