The ‘kilometre zero’ of the Austrian capital Stephansplatz is in easy walking distance from the Naschmarkt. A central shopping point in the city, the square is an important starting point for various other attractions. The geographical centre of the city of Vienna was named after Stephansdom or the St. Stephens Cathedral located on it; one of the tallest churches in the world.
The metro or U-Bahn station at Stephansplatz is one of the busiest in the world. It acts as a junction for many different metro lines and allows for easy access to popular tourist spots in the city. A witness to the changing times of the city, Stephansplatz is an integral part of Vienna’s history.
Located at a convenient distance from the mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vienna, the square is an essential spot during festivals and processions. The shopping district of Graben lies to the immediate South of Stephansplatz. Opposite to St. Stephens cathedral lies the Haas-Haus, a piece of striking modern architecture by Hans Hollein. Stephansplatz is easily the most happening area in the city of Vienna.
St. Stephen's Cathedral is the symbol of Vienna. Construction commenced in the 12th century. Today, it is one of the most important Gothic structures in Austria and is counted among the tallest churches in the world. It is the second-biggest free-swinging chimed church bell in Europe. On the roof of St. Stephen's Cathedral, colourful roof tiles were laid to create the Royal and Imperial double-headed eagle and the coat of arms of the city of Vienna.
The Diocesan Museum of Rottenburg-Stuttgart is among the oldest institutions of its kind, and houses one of the most important collections of medieval art in the state of Baden-Württemberg. It was founded in 1862 by Joseph von Lipp, the Bishop of Rottenburg at the time.
