What a wonderful place. This was a hidden gem in a forest of diamonds. Local Vendors are on site. A beautiful skating rink and nice warm beverages. Hours of fun to be had by all.

This place is in the centre of Vienna. All Important buildings like the Rathaus Palace, Parliament of Austria, Museums etc are situated in this place. It is very nicely lit in the evenings.

This is where the Christmas market is held, usually beginning on Nov. 30 and continuing until Dec. 23. Opening ceremony with oomph band singers, food stalls, decorations is not to be missed if you are here on opening day.

This area is dominated by a huge oustside ice skating ring and multiple vendors serving hot food made on site including smoked salmon and doughnuts, all hot and ready to eat. Delicious fun.

we were there early March and there was an ice rink and mini-winter food village serving mulled wine and various eats. The lights on the Rathaus make it look like a Disney castle and the whole area lit up at night was so nice. Would have liked to try ice skating as it wasn't just a rink but a "road"... More

We spent New Year in Wien and of course did visit Rathausplatz couple times - to check the Winter market, drink punch and eggnog, eat some delicious food... and most importantly - to celebrate New Year 2017! And it was amazing! One of the best New Year I have ever had! Live concert, friendly people, great firework, Johann Strauss II's... More

Jan to mar The whole front of this magnificent building including the parks paths - become an ice skating area. I never skated in such an amazing setting !!! The building is beautiful with the lights at night, even if it's not winter.

A small part of the Christmas market was made available by the end of March. The park in the Rathausplatz was turned in to a labyrinth with lights, and a huge snow globe in the center. Super romantic at night! Several cafes, lots to eat, lovely place to spend your time with the locals. Try out the Ferris wheel as... More

On the west side of the Ringstrasse is the government quarter where the City Hall, Parliament House and other power centers are located. The Rathausplatz is a key centerstage of these areas, and a major location in Vienna where many festivals and celebrations take place. It takes it name from the Rathaus building. When I was there, the park was... More

Each time I have been to Vienna, the Rahausplatz has been a great gathering spot for activity. Last visit was filled with Christmas Markets and punch, this visit with a beautiful and fun outdoor ice rink.

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.
