Haas Haus is located at Stephansplatz just opposite St. Stephen's Cathedral in the heart of the city of Vienna. It was designed by Austrian architect Hans Hollein and was constructed in 1990. The building received lots of criticisms when it was built. Many Viennese did not want yet another glass building so close to their historic St. Stephen's Cathedral!

Today many Viennese have accepted that this modern shopping mall is an architectural masterpiece. It is considered one of the most beautiful architectural buildings in Austria! Incidentally St. Stephen's Cathedral reflects perfectly and beautifully in the glass facade of this modern Haas Haus as depicted in our photograph above. The building is named after its former owner - a furniture store owner named Philip Haas & Söhne.

Beside the many luxurious shopping outlets, there is an elegant restaurant occupying its penthouse with a spectacular view of St. Stephen's Cathedral, Stephansplatz and the walking street below. You may also e-mail to the following address for more information regarding this elegant shopping mall: stephansplatz@haas-haus.at

Address: Stephansplatz 4, Vienna
Directions: Take Underground train line U1 or U3 and alight at Stephansplatz subway station. Haas Haus is located just opposite St. Stephen's Cathedral.

    I have to say I didn't like this building in its specific location. The Christmas lights help a bit though.

      It is a modern commercial building so near to the great cathedral. Not sure if they match? ~ho & pang
