Not far from the Austrian Parliament, situated on Rathausplatz is Neues Rathuas (Town Hall), which is one of the most beautiful buildings in the city, particularly at night when the facade is illuminated with floodlights. Built by Friedrich von Schmidt in 1883 in Gothic style, Rathaus is just a lovely building to see. The facade with its vaulted arches, statues,... More

This restaurant is located in a beautiful historic building, has friendly waiting staff but has a very limited menu and food and wine are so-so. Prices are very reasonable. If you are looking for a quick bite or the Austrian experience of eating a schnitzel, by all means this is the place for you, are you looking for a more... More

What an iconic building ! Situated behind the Parliament Building, it dominates the skyline and has a wonderful history. Take your passport an exchange it for the loan of a audio guide and be shown around this magnificent building that had the largest hall in Europe in its day and the tallest 'spire' in Vienna - thanks to the statue...

Not much seems to be free in this town, but getting a tour of the Rathaus is! The times are very limited, they offer them only on Mon, Wed and Fri at 1pm. But it is free, informative and interesting. The tour lasts one hour. The tour is in German, but audio guides are available in English for free (just... More

Surrounded by 3 skating rinks - the one for little kids is great fun to see. Each child had a small penguin-shaped statue to assist them to stand and skate. The building is another of Vienna's many architectural masterpieces, and you can tour it for free.

Great location and great ice-skating experience throughout the winter. it is not just a rink, it is a proper track inside the park with lots of restoration points offering local delicacies.

Although we didn't do any ice-skating at Rathaus, the facilities provided here for the winter months are fantastic. Skating rinks and lanes are ample and well constructed. People of all ages skating and having fun. There are food huts selling crepes, smoked fish, beverages, sweets and much, much more. Clean toilets are provided. Skate hire etc. If we'd had the... More

The Rathaus or City Hall is a symbol of bygone yet still magnificent architecture. However, the City of Vienna has used its environs as few counterparts in the world have skillfully used theirs. Ice skating is provided during much of the winter. At and before Christmas, witnesses a delightful and not to be missed Market, replete with little booths, lights... More

As locals avoid Rathaus for Christmas market, this was the last place I visited among others. It's true that more foreigners were there but I still enjoyed the place. The view was magnificent and stands were well organised. There were some workshops for kids so they surely could enjoy Christmas preparation.
