The Rathausplatz is a popular square in front of the magnificent Rathaus. It is well served by trams though slightly less so by U-Bahn as the station entrance is tucked away a couple of minutes behind the Rathaus. Rathausplatz has a small grassy area with lots of benches and trees as well as a children's play area. The grass is... More

I dont know how this place is other times but I visit here for film festivals only. Nothing to do with films or festival but this is a great event where you can taste local beer and wines and also eat some food from other countries. They do also show some concerts on the big screen, usually around 9 pm.... More

A real find as a place for a drink and a good value top quality bite to eat. There was a film festival on which looked great in front of the impressive Rathaus building, a great atmosphere there as locals and tourists mixed. Just go and take in the sights and smells!

I liked very much this square. When I reached there, it was the Film Festival and the place was very animated. The impressive hall is a very beautiful building.. In the night, it is very nice lighted. That area impressed me in a positive way.. It is like the 'heart' of the city. Don't miss it if in Vienna !

The spacious plaza in front of Vienna's architectural gem the "Rathaus" (in German that means "City Hall," so no "rat" jokes, please) is a five star feast during the summer months for films and wide-screen videos ranging from performances of jazz and pop to some of the world's best operas. It's free and open to public and is a great... More

If a tourist you are constantly looking for a combination of local experience and traditional foundation. This is your place - christkindl Markt (x-Mas market) in winter and film festival in summer. Local food, great ambience, fun, music and a surrounding arena of austria most beautiful architecture - Rathaus, burg theater, parliament - stunning

Great place for a dinner evening with all the food, beer, people watching and a nightly movie in the big outdoor screen. Highly recommend spending an evening here!
