Stephansplatz, Vienna

4.3
#7 of 141 in Sightseeing in Vienna
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

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.
