The Heroes’ Square in Vienna, also known as Heldenplatz, was designed by Gottfried Semper in the 19th century as a central square of the Kaiserforum, a plan which was not fully achieved due to the end of Habsburg’s reign in 1918. Heroes’ Square will be etched in history as the ground upon which Adolf Hitler gave a speech to thousands of Austrians, and the world, announcing annexation (Anchluß) of Austria to the Third Reich in 1938. Visit this large windswept region after dark for an optimal historic thrill when the Neue Burg is illuminated.
- The Natural History Museum in Vienna is one of the top museums globally, housing millions of artefacts including displays of a large dinosaur and rare fossils as well as a giant topaz.
- Go to Bitzinger Augustinerkeller near Heroes’ Square, an old Austrian style eatery and wine cellar with a cosy atmosphere filled with accordion tunes, and where you can order traditional Austrian dishes like roast chicken or schnitzel and sample a large variety of wines and local beers.
- Visit Hofburg Imperial Palace in Vienna and marvel at the impressive structure combining different architectural styles.
Heroes’ Square is hard to miss, even when travelling on public transport. The Vienna City Hop-on Hop-off bus is one of the options for getting to that area. The tour bus goes through 15 stops along its route from the State Opera, and one of them is Heldenplatz. Another way of getting to Heroes’ Square is via the City Airport Train (CAT), which takes approximately 16 minutes from Vienna Airport to Heldenplatz. Commuter trains are also available and are a cheaper option than the CATs, but take a longer time to arrive in Vienna from the airport.
