Maria Theresa Square (Maria Theresien Platz)
As the sole female ruler of the Habsburg Empire and one of the most revered of Austria’s royals, it seems only fitting that Empress Maria Theresa should have a public square named in her honor.  Located along the famous Ringstrasse, at the heart of historic Vienna, Maria Theresa Square (Maria Theresien Platz) is surrounded by many of the capital’s most prominent landmarks, with the Museum Quarter to the south and the magnificent Hofburg Palace to the north.

Laid out in the 19th century, the square centers around an enormous statue of Maria Theresa by Kaspar Zumbusch, encircled by a series of formal gardens, dotted with monumental fountains and sculptures. Maria Theresa Square is also home to two of the city’s most notable museums – the Kunsthistorisches Museum (Museum of Fine Arts) and the Naturhistorisches Museum (Museum of Natural History), whose grand neo-Renaissance facades were created as part of the grand imperial Kaiserforum, the masterwork of German architect Gottfried Semper.
Address: Maria-Theresien-Platz, Vienna, Austria

Vienna’s most famous and coveted markets are the Christmas markets. Taking place from the middle of November to the end of December, a Viennese Christmas market is a special experience. There are large Christmas markets with hundreds of stalls selling Austrian delicacies, handmade wooden toys, souvenirs, and of course mulled cider and wine, to tiny Christmas markets wedged inside dead-end cobblestoned streets-blink-and-you’ll-have-missed-it. Each is unique and unforgettable in its own way. Join us on a three-hour Christmas market crawl that will take you to the following markets: •Karlsplatz • Maria-Theresa Square •Rathausplatz / City Hall * Depending on the various markets opening times, one of the markets above may be substituted with another (equally as beautiful!) Christmas market.
