Maria Theresien Platz is a large public square in Vienna, Austria, dedicated to the memory of the only female ruler of the Hapsburg Empire. Located next to the Ringstraße, it is surrounded by imperial-looking buildings that house several large and impressive museums. The platz itself is dominated by a 19-metre-high bronze statue of Maria Theresien, who reigned for forty years, along with sculptures of some of her most famous advisors. During late November and early December, the Maria Theresien Platz is home to a traditional European Christmas market featuring local food and gifts perfect for a stop during that time of year.
