Vienna city hall designed in the Gothic style by Friedrich von Schimdt late 19th century. At the top of the tower hall is a councilor ie. Rathausmann, symbol of Vienna. In front of the hall is a large park - Rathauspark- that between januarta and March turns into a beautiful ice rink.

Lovely Markets in Christmas, great atmosphere and really good food. You can also get interesting presents from here, not to mention contemplate the magnificent Rathaus architecture building.

The Rathausplatz is always crowdy because there are some activities all the time. That time it was the Christmas market where you could wander about, choosing and buying gifts or souvenirs, having a cup (very fancy by the way) of mulled wine or punsch with wurst hot-dog or some other deep-fried, artery clogging goodies. While taking some rest between the... More

are the best in front of Rathaus. We visited all the main markets in Vienna during our trip, but we can admit that these are the biggest and most beautiful ones. Moreover we had the fortune to assist to a romantic wedding proposal when we was walking in the gardens...

Vienna at New Year should be on everyone's bucket list. Vienna knows how to put on a show and keep the tourists coming. The best part is all city festivities are free. Start at Rathaus mix with locals and tourists alike, have Gluhwein (mulled wine) or punch or hot chocolate in a festive mug. Traditional foods available at stands too.... More

The Rathausplatz is very beautiful, I saw during a holiday I spent in Vienna with my boyfriend from 1 to 5 of Dicembre.La square with all the markets and the Christmas decorations is truly magical. It is close to the Hofburg and is reached through a lovely park. Obviously, all this to say that I recommend Vienna to all people... More

Right from the start we realised the Christmas spirit! In the cold winter night,we started walking around the stalls,we felt really cozy looking around the Christmas decorations. You should definitely try the warm wine and take the mug home as a souvenir! Great place!

The Rathaus is really spectacular at night. But during the Christmas season Rathausplatz takes on a magical atmosphere. So many beautiful Christmas decorations and lights and so many markets. We had a great time eating and shopping. A memorable experience not to be missed.
