Day 2 : Hofburg area

The Michaeler Platz (square) is dominated by the Michaeler Tor (gate).
This Michaeler gate is in fact the entry towards the Hofburg, the Kaiserappartments and the Winterreitschule.

In the middle of the Michaeler Platz, there is kind of a hole, here you can see the results of recent excavations, they found the remains of a Roman camp, and remains of mediaeval foundations.

On this square you also can visit the Michaeler kirche (church).

If you follow the street opposite the Michaeler (Kohl Markt), you will pass the Demel Konditorei, which an excellent place to stop to taste the delicious house made pastry.

And from here you are only a few steps away from the Graben square with its Plague column.

Address: The winter palace of the emperor
