Freyung is a triangular shaped public square in Vienna. It is just northwest of Am Hof Square. Its a neat place to spend a bit of time during trips to Vienna. Historically the square was just beyond the walls of a Roman fortification at this...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!

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.

Beautiful evening at the Easter market. Some wonderful Austrian made gifts to be bought. The handcrafted eggs are a piece of art. Bottle of Austrian wine for 5.50€. Lovely evening in Vienna.
