Great concept having ice skating rink in front of Rathaus. I dont think other main tourist attraction in the world have done that. Combined with christmas night market the place is very lively. Lots of foods to choose and eat!

This place during Christmas is a must see. Its literally like walking in a Christmas Card. So many different vendors and stands. I wish I could go back just for that market.

Huge building and AWESOME details in the architecture. You'll be astounded when you see it. Makes you feel so small... Great by day and by night.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
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 centre. 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.
