Top ways to experience Rathaus
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

Vienna City Hall (or Rathaus) is the living history of Vienna. Beside magnificence of 19th century's building, this building is located right nearby other main attractions of Vienna city. So definetely recommend to see this place as it makes you to understand European culture deeper. You can walk right into the internal yard of the building, guards are very polite and will help you navigate throughout the building complex. After finishing your tour, please visit The Cafe Votiv which is conveniently located on the corner block, it has relaxing atmosphere and nice view to VotivKirche Church. Enjoy:-)

Very cool and intricate building. We went during New Years Eve when the city throws a NYE party, more or less, so we didn’t go in or anything. However, it is a very beautiful building, and I would want to go see it if I visited Vienna.

It is quite central though, so you might not need to seek it out, you will probably stumble upon it like most of the incredible architecture in Vienna.

We went there during Christmas time and we were lucky yo experience their market there. it was more crowded than Schonbrunn Market but very alive and fun. all the shops are authentic and captivating. We had punch and bought some home made ginger cakes and nuts. We loved it. some friends met us up as well for a stroll which was very pleasant. The place was full of energy and the weather was perfect and we felt warm from all the punch we drank. We would love to try that again someday in our lives!

Located 5 minutes by walk from the Volkstheater metro station. The palace is externally magnificient. The problem is that can't be visited inside and also the internal court is not reachable. Before the covid, only visits on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10:00 with pre-registration on site at 8:00 were possible. It's a pity, the management of visitors should be completely revised.

In a city of amazing buildings this one is certainly one of the most beautiful. Vienna has so many great sites to see one can become a little complacent but this one really takes your breath away.

It is absolutely huge and the architecture stunning. Get your cameras ready as you will definitely want some photos of this one.

Despite the bombings during the war it is still in excellent condition and really well maintained.

Different than most townhomes I am used to seeing!

The Rathausplatz is a square in Vienna, Austria. The Rathausplatz is in the Innere Stadt, near the new Rathaus, after which it is named. Because of its size, its design and the architecture of the surrounding buildings it is one of the most important squares in central Vienna. From January to March, the Town Hall Square turns into a huge ice rink and excites ice skating enthusiasts of all ages. The ice world in Vienna is one of the largest outdoor ice skating rinks in the world - and on no less than two levels! During the winter it's an irrepressible fairy tale

Spent a sunny hour in January skating on the ice rink constructed for a few weeks every year. Lockers to leave your belongings, stalls selling hot drinks and doughnuts and a pleasant atmosphere. Night time would be pretty with fairy lights strung up on trees around the skating area.

I was for two times in Austria, usually, traveling is simply to be attracted by the forest and landscape. It's very important to appreciate the cities, Vienna is very beautiful city, the Rathaus, is one example of neogotic culture and art.

The Rathaus is the town hall of Vienna. The building is built in a Neo-Gothic style, very imposing and dominates Rathausplatz on which it sits. The building is open to the general public and you can basically just walk straight in. The interiors are very impressive and many tourists like to have their photos taken on the very ceremonial looking, red carpeted staircases. The interiors are noticeably gothic with its many columns and ribbed vaults.

A magnificent building.
