"Michealsplatz and History" Hofburg Palace Complex Tip by KituAdventures

Hofburg Palace Complex, Vienna: 217 reviews and 468 photos


The wedding cake affair that is the joyous Micheal's Gate of the Hofburg overlooks Vienna's most controversial building, Loos Haus. Apparently, the curtains at the Hofburg were closed so Emperor Franz Josef didn't have to look at it. Now on Michealplatz is an archealogical presentation of unearthed foundations from Vibonea, the Roman town that preceded Vienna.
