  • The centre is really beautiful and clean compared to other huge city's. Really recommend going to a concert when you're in Vienna. The architecture is amazing too.

  • A truly beautiful sight. There are several buildings in this location. All with amazing and intriguing designs, statues, patterns and carvings. The area is very clean. Taking pics and stopping to admire can be uncomfortable as the area is extremely busy(as it should be). So better go in the morning or early afternoon on weekdays. During holidays, the area is decorated beautifully. Taxis and cars will find it difficult to pass the streets here due to excess pedestrians. All in all, amazing place, definitely a most visit when you are in Vienna.
  • A truly beautiful area of Vienna. There are numerous buildings in this area with amazing architecture,sculptures, patterns,museums and carvings. The area is very clean and has lots of opportunities for taking photos. The area is most busy in the evenings and nights when everyone comes out. During holidays the area is decorated beautifully and has many Christmas markets around the area as I experienced when I visited here. In my opposition from what I saw the best one was the large Christmas market near and around St. Stephens Cathedral in the historic city centre. I would definitely recommend this area as a must visit when you are in Vienna.I would definitely visit this area again when I am in Vienna
