    Maria Theresien Platz

    by Kova Updated Dec 22, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Maria Theresien Platz and Memorial is just by the Kunsthistorisches Museum and the Naturhistorisches Museum. It's an impressive place to see, altought it was too crowded due to December's christmas market and their record number of tourists in this year's December. They will charge you quite a lot to get to museums so I can't tell you what it's like inside :) but the memorial looks great and it includes most important people from her times, such as Kaunitz, van Swieten, Haugwitz,....

    Maria Theresia

    The most beloved and widely regarded as the greatest ruler of Habsburgs, this mother of 16 ruled for over 40 years. This statue is located between two museums, the Naturhistorsches Museum and the Kunsthistorisches Museum and across the street from the Heldenplatz. Maria Theresia reformed the army and economy as well as improved civil rights.

    Maria-Theresien-Platz is the square that sits between the Kunsthistorisches Museum and the Natural History Museum. Its focal point is the monument built in 1888 dedicated to Maria Theresa (1717-1780), the only woman to ever rule the Habsburg dynasty. She took the throne in 1740. She is regarded by many historians to be the saviour of the Habsburg Empire.

    Maria-Theresien-Platz

    by Airpunk Written Jul 30, 2012

    The Maria-Theresien-Square is located southwest to the Hofburg and is a good example of baroque city planning. Right in the middle, there is a statue of Empress Maria Theresia, one of the best-known sovereigns of her time. The garden was designed in a typical baroque layout. The Naturhistorisches Museum (Natural History Museum, 1899) and the Kunsthistorisches Museum (Historical Art Museum, 1891) are newer, but fit very well into the layout.

    Maria Theresa statue stands in the middle between buildings of National Museum and across from Hofburg. She was the Queen also in Czech country (joint with Austria) in 18. century.

    Maria Theresia Platz is one of the most beautiful city squares. There are two museums situated here that represent mirror image of each other - Kunsthistorisches and Naturhistorisches museums.

    A large monument of Kaiserin Maria Theresa - apparently she was the mother of education to the Viennese - having made it compulsory for all children to attend school
