The Freyung Passage is an elegant shopping arcade built in the 19th century as part of the Ferstel Palace. The arcade links the Herrengasse with the Freyung historic square. The arcade was designed by architect Heinrich von Ferstel in 1860. The marble-clad passage with pilasters...More

Probably not on your top ten list of places or things to see in Vienna but this Square was feet from our apartment and we walked by it each day. A Small Square and a Nice Statue Fountain it is in three tiers and drops...More

Worth a quick peek or stop for a coffee if you are strolling round the inner City or Ringstrasse. In the 16th and 17th century, lots of private palaces sprang up here, and in nearby Rennngasse, to be close to the Hoffburg. Most are now...More

Really fun, kinda touristy but not in a cringe-y way. It's mostly centered around handcrafted egg ornaments but it has a lot of food too. Get a punch at the bar, walk around, sip it, look at all the eggs, listen to some casual music,...More

Smaller and less upscale than the Palace Easter market, but worth the visit. A great place to just walk around and be a tourist.

We came here in the winter and stayed at the Benedictine guesthouse on this plaza. It was very local to walking all around. It was very quiet as well with little noise from cars. Lots of horse and carriages instead. Beautiful and old!

Small but enjoyable Christmas market. Impressive mural on the backs of the stalls that was fun to see. If you had limited time I would choose a larger market for more bang for your buck but we enjoyed this one then hopped over to Am...More

We were so disappointed by this Christmas Market in Vienna. Utterly devoid of atmosphere, celebration and entirely lacking in variety. Overpriced also but that is Vienna (relative to Germany). Such a shame.

One of the most historic locations in Vienna. Amazing architecture all around. Very near Hofburg and other famous places.

We just happened to stumble upon this square which is beautiful! Totally free unless you want to enter any of the buildings and is definitely worth a visit. Really gives you a taste of old Viennese architecture.

In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards
Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks
such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera),
Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral)
and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’
former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as
Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse
and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The
