Here’s a list of the top photography spots in Vienna.

Belvedere Palace Gardens

There are many ways to capture beautiful shots in the gardens around the Belvedere palace. You can view the palace from a reflection pool or look up past gardens and fountains.

The gardens are also a delight, with their beautiful arrangements and hedgerows. The Belvedere Palace Garden is a great vantage point to capture the Vienna skyline.

Best Time Afternoon Located: 27 Prinz Eugen Street, Third District

Ferstel Passage

Many people don’t realize that several passages run through Vienna’s historic center. The Ferstel Passage is undoubtedly the most photographed. It runs through a series of historical noble palaces and features an elegant arcade. The passage’s courtyard, filled with light, features a classic indoor fountain and ornate skylights.

Best Time: Daily

Location: Von Herrengasse bis Freyung in the First District

Graben

Graben is the most well-known street in Vienna. It’s a pedestrian boulevard that runs right through the city’s heart. There are many photo opportunities, including glimpses of St. Stephen’s Cathedral at one end and the elaborate Plague Column along its length. Graben is an especially special spot when large, chandelier-shaped lights hang high overhead during Christmastime.

Best Time Anytime, but especially nights around Christmas

Location: Graben, First District

Michaelerplatz

Michaelerplatz is the only place in Vienna that can truly capture the splendor of Vienna. This circular open space is in front of Hofburg Palace’s gleaming white baroque façade. You’ll find two stunning fountains at the main gate, as well as traditional horse carriages that are parked in front.

Best Time: Morning/evening

Location: Michaelerplatz, First District

Karlskirche

Karlskirche, the second most well-known church in Vienna, is a landmark that deserves to be photographed. Its extravagant design and bronzed dome are the reasons for its popularity. The two columns flanking it on either side are also noteworthy. There are many opportunities to get great shots with the large reflecting pool and leafy park right in front.

Best Time: Afternoon/evening

Location: Karlsplatz, Fourth District

Vienna Rathaus

European city halls are a good place to get inspiration for photography. The Rathaus in Vienna is no exception. The Rathaus is distinguished from the rest of the city by its Neo-Gothic architecture, central tower and other architectural features. This spot has one problem: almost always, there is an event or fair on the square in front.

Best Time Anytime, but particularly at night and blue hour

Location: 1 Friedrich-Schmidt-Platz, First District

Schonbrunn Palace

Schonbrunn Palace has been a popular tourist attraction in Vienna for a good reason. While the state rooms and private apartments are amazing and worth the visit, it is the gardens that photographers need to remember.

Some sections, such as the Privy Garden or Maze, require tickets. However, the main gardens are free to the public and are breathtakingly detailed. The Glorietta has the best views of the palace and the city skyline, so you might consider paying for it.

Best Hour: Open hours

Location: 47 Schonbrunner Schlossstrasse in Thirteenth District
