It is impossible to get it all in with just taking pictures. It is more than 180 degrees of amazing plaza. St. Michael's Church is nearby and the Spanish Riding Stable are right there too. the sculptures and architecture is perfect.

Located in Vienna's city center, the Michaelerplatz has as its primary feature the Hofburg Imperial Palace. Nice central location, though, to see many of the sites of Vienna.

Part of the Palace/Center visit, this place has just one problem... it is always packed of tourist (like you are) and makes almost impossible to take a nice pic of the lovely details around

The imposing domed entrance to the Hofburg palace with its majestic statues dominates the square which is also home to Roman Ruins. This is a prominent square in the historic center of Vienna and is definitely worth a visit.

Michaelerplatz is a beautiful and unique little corner of Vienna. The sculptures are heavenly. This is one of my favourite places to just sit and people watch in Vienna.
