Top ways to experience Historic Center of Vienna
The area
Neighbourhood: Inner City
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 Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

Wonderful any time of day
Jul 2021
I am an early walker and I was able to enjoy the historic center throughout the day. There is a different feeling to it early morning, with locals going to open the shops and cafes around. You seat somewhere for coffee, and once you are out it suddenly is buzzing with countless people walking in every direction. The buildings are beautiful and will have you walk with your head up looking at the intricate decorations. I walked 30km in a single day around it going from place to place. One of the more beautiful historic centers in Europe.

Great area

Take your time to walk through it as there is so much to see and do. Even in covid times a lot to do and still see from the many churchs, historical buildings and shopping or resturants.
It will take hours but fully worthwhile.
