  • City Hall and City Hall square are unquestionably a landmark. Also a small park invites you to linger. Good public transport connection, for example with the tram. In the immediate vicinity other beautiful buildings. Worthwhile in any case.

  • There is always something going on before the Town Hall. On the square in the Park and also the environment of the Town Hall is worth a visit.

  • This is one of the crucial sightseeing places in Vienna. Look around and you will see a lot of beautiful things. Among them are the city hall, the state theatre and a nice garden embracing the square. A lot of fests and events take place here.
  • Amazingly grand building, that has a huge open front plaza. When we were there they had a concert setting up and we got to sample so amazing music. It is so close to all the other amazing buildings. Must see
  • The most beautiful public building in Vienna! The park has an adorable Christmas market since late november. The ice rink is also amazing with paths that are almost "hugging" the trees.
  • Nice little park located between two iconic pieces of Vienna's architecture :). There is also always some event going on throughout the year: Christmas market, ice skating, Easter market, Vienna City Marathon, Summer film festival, .... Very touristy! ;)
  • A beautiful building. It's particularly great in winter, as the ground turns into a huge ice skating ring ⛸

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
