Fodor's Expert Review Himmelpfortgasse

The Eastern City Center: Stephansdom and Medieval Vienna Neighborhood/Street

The maze of tiny streets surrounding Himmelpfortgasse (literally, "Gates of Heaven Street") conjures up the Vienna of the 19th century. The most impressive house on the street is the Ministry of Finance. The rear of the Steffl department store on Rauhensteingasse now marks the site of the house in which Mozart died in 1791. There's a commemorative plaque that once identified the street-side site, together with a small memorial corner devoted to Mozart memorabilia, which can be found on the sixth floor of the store.
