Josefsplatz, located in the city centre of Vienna, is a famous public square that is home to the Baroque-style Vienna Hofburg Imperial Palace, the Spanish Riding School, and an art gallery. Explore the square on foot, and visit the Cafe Hawelka, popular amongst tourists and locals. Visitors may indulge in retail therapy at the nearby Herrengasse and Kohlmarkt, two of the city's most exclusive shopping streets. Recently, this popular square has been featured on collector coins that highlight the imperial palace, the impressive Joseph II monument, and the riding school. Located downtown, Josefsplatz is a great base for Vienna exploration.

  • Josefsplatz is the most homogeneous of all of Vienna's squares, unspoilt by modern construction; it displays the classicist façade Palais Pallavicini right next to the renaissance era Palais Pallfy.
  • The Palais Pallfy is not only interesting for its façade, but also for its interior; indulge in Vienna's spirit by enjoying a waltz concert or visiting regularly changing art exhibitions.
  • Austria's National Library is located near Josefsplatz, and its baroque grand hall is a must-see Vienna attraction.

It is easiest to get around Vienna by subway and lines U1-U4 that stop at Stephansplatz. From there, visitors can explore the Josefsplatz square on foot. The National Library, including the grand hall and its diverse museums, such as the papyrus museum, the globe museum and the Esperanto museum, are open from Tuesday to Sunday between 10 am and 6 pm. Palais Pallfy and its Phantasten Museum on the first floor can be visited daily during the same time. Classical concerts take place on the second floor every night at 8 pm.
