PPG is a unique collection of buildings in the Market Square section of downtown Pittsburgh. Several good restaurants are housed in these buildings and the Winter Garden is lovely...especially at Christmas time. There is also an ice rink in Winter and fountains in which the kids can play in Summer.

The stunning architecture alone makes it worth a visit, but the Wintergarden ice skating rink takes it up a notch or two.

Thank you PPG for opening your building to the public for the wonderful and amazing Christmas displays, gingerbread houses, and Santas from around the world.!! See photos under Market Square. You must go here during the holidays to enjoy this experience.

This is my favorite building in downtown Pittsburgh.The architecture is beautiful. In winter there is an ice skating rink here. Nearby Market Square has plenty of great unique restaurants.

We didn't actually make it inside the buidling. We were there on Christmas Day and ice skated for the first time. It's not very big so be prepared to get passed by the better skaters and really watch for the novices in case they fall in front of you. The tree in the middle of the rink was beautifully decorated.

This place is really a movie-style! A must try for any one down in Pitts even if you've never skated ever. Believe me, I didn't skate all these years and its not at all difficult to get going once you are on the Rink. Top of all, the open setting- with those Christmas lights, your favorite music playing in the... More

We did not end up going inside, however, the building was very cool to look at. It looks as if it could be made of stone but was glass.
