If you enjoy delving into the city's history and seeing beautiful buildings, this is your district.
For the heart of the city, this is the place to be. In the very stately city centre, you will find quiet medieval alleys and richly decorated 19th-century buildings that now house many shops. Around the overwhelming St Stephen's Cathedral it is always busy. Around the centre runs the Ringstraße, with beautiful sights such as the imposing Staatsoper, the Rathaus, the Hofburg with the imperial flats and the Spanische Hofreitschule. That there is a real coffee culture in Vienna can be seen in the many old coffee houses in this district. And with Kaffee comes Kuchen, so order a piece of cake to go with it.
