A magnificent piece of architecture at any time, but especially beautiful at night during the Christmas season. Brilliantly illuminated behind stalls filled with Christmas goodies with throngs of people milling about. It is well worth a visit.

Wow, this is possibly the best City Hall I have seen. It is incredible. The day we were there, we witnessed a great fare outside with singers, staged events, music and culture typical of Austria. This place was a few blocks from our hotel. The gardens were a very peaceful place to sit and watch the world go by. Incidentally, if I had a choice to live anywhere I wanted in this world, Vienna would be it. A center of education, art, history, culture and just about everything I desire. Vienna also has one of the best transit systems and the city as a whole is clean. My visit was also during the visit of the Dalai Lama. That just added more spice to the place. People are friendly and warm and the place is charming.

The place where the Christmasmarkt is held. It can be very busy in Christmastime, but you have to visit it when you are Vienna.

I saw the top of the Rathaus lit up from my hotel window and I had to go see it. It was spectacular at night. There was almost no one around and the building was very impressive. It's nice when they have a lot of open space in front of a building so you can see it.

The Christmas Market here is something to see. All year it is wonderful as well. There seems to always be something happening at the Rathaus. Look up what may be there while you are there.
