“Christmas market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

We didn't go inside the Rathaus, and the purpose of our visit to this area of the city was to enjoy the large Christmas market.
The usual stalls with the standard Glühwein, Wurst, sweets, nick-nacks, clothing, leather goods, This is the biggest market in Vienna, so should not be missed - but try to take in the smaller ones, too, e.g. the markets at Freyung and Althof.

“Wonderfull”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

A gorgeous building surrounded by the Christmas Market. Quite a big market with lots of varied stalls. The façade and decorated trees make this a charming area.

“Rathaus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

I always wonder why in German they have this word for town hall.. It's an impressive building, very big, beautiful architecture. There is a Xmas market there in this time if year, it's the biggest in Wien. It was crowed. They sell everything there for the holidays.. It's definitely worth a visit !

“Impressive!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

This is a very striking building and well worth a visit. As with many of the historic buildings in Vienna, it is easily reached on foot although the trams are very efficient.

“Impressive but crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

The palace is definitely worth seeing, the Christmas markets here will keep you busy! It was a little crowded but not unbearable. Inside the palace there is a children's market where they do their candle painting and other activities, VERY CUTE.
