Nice place to mingle with the locals
Universitatsplatz is not big, but it is beautiful and you're sure to come across it at some point in your trip as it's located between Getreidegasse and Residenzplatz. It's a picturesque plaza with the gigantic Kollegienkirche which unfortunately was closed during our visit. Really, it's massive. It seems to have fallen from the sky right into the middle of the square. The buildings that make up the northern side of the square are painted in bright colors and add a vivid touch. The square sometimes hosts a traditional food market where you can get great cheeses, meats and sausages at decent prices.
