Rathaus platz is a winter wonderland in February with skating rink, skating paths and stalls selling all manner of food, gifts and beverages to imbibe. The hot gluhwine and rum punch are not to be missed on a winter's day.

It doesn´t matter if you come here in winter or summer, there is always something happeing here :). Christmas markets, New Year´s Eve, Ice skating until March, Easter markets, summer concerts and various events and many more. It´s right in the city centre, close beautiful garden Volksgarte, 15 minutes walk from Stephansplatz. I recommend to visit.

What a great place – ice skating rink and courses. Lots of people having fun – a festival atmosphere with booths for snacks and drinks. A sky tower with a sky bar with excellent views at night. Clean bathrooms are available. Just fun for young and old.

Christmas in Australia means really hot days, sun-burn, hot nights, eating a hot Xmas lunch, and finishing off with Xmas pudding - then sleeping it off until the sun goes down. Or, some families like to take everything to the beach, under a 38 degrees Celsius sun and run around in the park or on the white hot sand at... More

The city hall's building is amazing! The Christmas market is like a fairytale. If you visit Vienna don't miss this! Although is beautiful, we chose this location for the New Year's Eve countdown and fireworks and we were a bit disappointed: the was no countdown and the fireworks..... But all in all, this attraction is a must!

The impressive Gothic structure is impressive enough to warrant a visit. However, the regular "other" attractions there make it all the more worthwhile. Unfortunately we missed the Xmas markets but were treated to one of the best ice skating rinks ever seen. It had the typical rectangle but attached was an "ice trail" to venture through - it was absolutely... More

We visited Vienna by our car. After parking the car at the first metro station we took the metro to museums square. The ice-skating was at a perfect location. It was such a nice decoration in the middle of the government buildings. Our kids loved to watch first and then looked forward to do it at a nicer weather. Finding... More

This plaza hosts a myriad of events, seeing that Rathaus is town hall and seat of the mayor. Film and food festivals are common sights here, but what Rathausplatz is renown for is the Christmas market that kicks of mid to late-November. Vendors selling roasted chestnuts, fried langos, and hot punsch really get you in the holiday spirit, so if... More
