Vienna Downtown

The city center of Vienna

The most significant and grandiose buildings were constructed under the legendary Viennese emperors – for example the Hofburg Palace complex, where Sisi once lived. The world-famous Spanish Riding School with its noble Lipizzaners is also situated here.

Very close to the Hofburg, the Imperial Crypt (Kaisergruft) calls to mind the Austrian capital’s former rulers.

St. Stephan’s Cathedral (Stephansdom) forms the precise focal point of the city of Vienna, located exactly in the dead centre of the city.

Hofburg Imperial Palace (Wiener Hofburg)

Hotel Walking distance

Hotel Capricorno ca. 12 minutes
Hotel Am Parkring ca. 8 minutes
Hotel Erzherzog Rainer ca. 20 minutes

The impressive Hofburg Imperial Palace served as a residence for the Habsburgian emperors of the Austrian-Hungarian monarchy. From here, emperors and empresses like Franz Josef or Maria Theresia reigned their empire, which at the time reached across wide stretches of Europe. Selected parts of the Hofburg Imperial Palace are open to visitors.

Unique in the world: At the Spanish Riding School the classic art of horsemanship in the tradition of the “haute école” of the Renaissance has been cultivated unchanged for fully 430 years. The elegant horses – white Lipizzaners – and their riders are an international symbol for Viennese culture. Be sure not to miss a Lipizzaner show!

Particularly impressive about the Imperial Crypt containing the bodies of the Habsburg rulers are its quiet splendour and its expression of imperial power. Fans of the empress Elisabeth – lovingly called Sisi by the people – may view her last resting place in the Imperial Crypt. Apart from Sisi’s honorary grave, visitors can view numerous other graves of popular rulers from the Austro-Hungarian monarchy.

The “Dom zu St. Stephan,” one of Vienna’s landmarks, awaits you directly in the heart of the city. Lovingly called “Steffl” by the Viennese, it is an impressive sacral masterpiece. The services at St. Stephan’s Cathedral are initiated by the so-called “Pummerin” – the dome’s distinctive bells. From the South Tower of St. Stephen’s Cathedral you can enjoy an unforgettable view of Vienna.

The Opera Ball is held annually at the Vienna State Opera.
