For travelers looking for great food with amazing selections at a very reasonable price, this is the place! Over twenty five restaurants crammed into one authentically Austrian venue. I loved it and the food is delicious. Dont hesitate just go!

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

Best time to visit is in the evening when the Christmas atmosphere at its best. We walked down the main street from the Opera House and found it nestled in amongst the modern shopping, a great surprise. My young niece thought she was in a Disney movie. Did not try and go in so cant comment on that.

My daughter and I enjoyed it immensely around Christmas. We really loved that almost fairytale feel as we wondered around drinking hot punch, while those huge Christmas trees were ornamented with beautiful big shiny decorations. My daughter bought a beautiful shiny white owl for our Christmas tree. Had a great time!!!
