Let's visit the historical landmarks of Vienna together

Vienna is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe with a rich history and cultural heritage. Here are some historical landmarks in Vienna worth visiting:

St. Stephen's Cathedral

The St. Stephen's Cathedral, known as the "heart of Vienna," is a landmark building in Vienna and one of the three major cathedrals in Europe. Today, it stands quietly in the bustling center of the old town, like a guardian of Vienna. When you come to the city center of Vienna, you will surely be amazed by its magnificent and imposing presence.

Plague Column

The Black Death Memorial Column, located in the center of Graben Street, is a European Baroque-style monument commemorating those who suffered from the Black Death.

Heroes' Square

Heroes Square is a square located outside the Hofburg Palace, built during the reign of Emperor Franz Joseph I. It is a part of the unfinished so-called "Imperial Forum". The northeastern part of the square is the Leopoldinian Tract of the Hofburg Palace, the southeast is the Neue Hofburg, and the southwest is the inner ring road, separating the square from the "Outer Castle Gate" (Aeusseress Burgtor). There are no buildings in the northwest, allowing for a clear view of the inner ring road, the Parliament building, the City Hall, and the Castle Theatre.

Hofburg Palace

The Hofburg Palace is one of the largest Baroque architectural complexes in Austria, located just an hour's drive east of Vienna. It was once part of the magnificent castle of the Habsburg Empire and served as a residence for the Austrian emperors. According to legend, Prince Eugene, the legendary General of Savoy, became the owner of the Hofburg Palace in 1725, acquiring this magnificent castle, grand art terrace gardens, and a manor built in the 17th century. Thirty years later, Empress Maria Theresa purchased the palace and redesigned it, remodeling and decorating the ground floor.

Vienna Central Cemetery

Vienna Central Cemetery is the largest cemetery in Vienna and one of the largest in Europe. It is the final resting place of more than 20 musical masters including Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, and the Strauss family. The tombstones and sculptures here form a true art hall.
