Discovering Maria-Theresien-Platz, Vienna

Where : Maria Theresien-Platz, Vienna Discovering Maria-Theresien-Platz This square is located in front of MuseumsQuartier and it’s walking distance from the metro as well. It’s a public area and free park with a beautiful monument in the middle.  There's also a nice and well kept garden where you can walk around or take few minutes to sit and enjoy the ambience.
