Fodor's Expert Review Josefsplatz

The Hofburg: An Imperial City Plaza/Square

Many consider this Vienna's loveliest courtyard and, indeed, the beautifully restored imperial style adorning the roof of the buildings forming Josefsplatz is one of the few visual demonstrations of Austria's onetime widespread power and influence. The square's namesake is represented in the equestrian statue of Emperor Joseph II (1807) in the center.
