Had the pleasure of dining here on the terrace. Food was spectacular, service perfect. We were treated so well that I can't wait to return.

Found this and enjoyed the designs. Would have loved to gone inside.. It was after hours . And would enjoy knowing more about the architect. It's odd buildings hundreds of years old and then this modern building!

This postmodern monster vis a vis Stephansdom? Bad joke. I just don´t like modern architecture in the historical parts... especially next to the almost seven centuries old cathedral.

It doesn´t ruin the surroundings as much as the viewing platform does in the interior of St. Charles church.

The building is located just opposite the Stephansdom Cathedral and designed in postmodernist style which is, of course, completely contrary to the imposing cathedral. That is the reason why this work of Austrian architect Hans Hollein cause so many contradictions even today.

Generally, I like the architectural experiments and combining the extremal modern architectural elements into the historic places. As, for example the Louvre Pyramid or the London's Gherkin or Hundertwasser buildings. But this one is so brutal, heavy, ugly, clumsy, crushing and, most important, not connected to anything on this square in any manner. Furthermore, this building is looking today very... More

Located just in the heart of the busiest pedestrian streets in the heart of the city,this modern building is taking yr attention in any way.Nothing very important about this one.Maybe,you will take some photos of it.That's all.

All the guides talk about how controversial the Haas Haus is, blah blah blah. The bottom line is you're not going to see "controversy" here. What you will see is two very interesting architectural specimens from extremely different eras in close enough proximity to view/photograph them together. If you like architecture or just enjoy contrasting esthetic expressions this is a... More

You're already at the St. Stephen's Cathedral, hopefully in the daytime and ideally in the late afternoon. Right across the street is this modern glass building with rounded edges. The reflection of the cathedral in the windows is gorgeous. Some people might complain about the juxtaposition of such a hypermodern building with the gothic cathedral, but what could you put...

Not surprisingly the Viennese objected to this building when it was erected in 1990. It's the only modern house among all the neoclassical buildings in Stephensplatz. It's unique point is the reflection of the Cathedral, but apart of this- it's completely out of place.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
