#13 of 722 in Things to do in Vienna
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. With our custom trip planner, Vienna attractions like Stephansplatz can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Great area in the heart of the city. Explore, shop, eat, soak in the atmosphere. Tip : if you get lost - and we did, even with a guidebook - ask an elderly lady. And if you look lost, they'll come to ...  more »
  • There's no way anyone could pass up a visit to Vienna's main square, that shows the Cathedral is as amazing and very pleasant to walk around the square and depart (Kärntner or Graben). From the other side of the square there is a tea shop with a huge range of types who must buff (the Holocaust and Holocaust)

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.
