Location: The Canadian embassy is within the old town inner city, so a few minutes walk from an awful lot of attractions. Head west and south to reach the great cathedral Stephansdom, and the main pedestrianised shopping streets of Graben and Kärntnerstraße. Go up the Graben, past the plague column, to reach Kohlmarkt which takes you on down to the Hofburg palace complex with its museums, imperial tours and more.
For something a little different, head north from the embassy and walk along the Danube canal to view a lot of street art (graffiti). Or go to Schwedenplatz and walk west to reach the “Bermuda Triangle” area with its many bars and restaurants.
