Michaelerplatz, Vienna: 25 reviews and 72 photos

by grkboiler

Michaelerplatz is the area that is in front of the entrance to the Hofburg Complex, Michaelertor. As you walk towards the Michaelertor, directly in front you will notice a hole in the ground with unearthed Roman ruins and Medieval foundations on top of them. It is like a time capsule of Ancient Vienna.

The Michaelertor is the actual entrance to the Hofburg Complex. The dome and carvings on top is called the Michaelertrakt.

Address: The winter palace of the emperor
Directions: From Stephansplatz walk down Graben then make a left at Kohlmarkt and you will run right into it.
