  • A must see for touring the sights in Vienna. Check out daily tours at 1300 hrs. Nice Christmas Market, shops, food amd drink. Ice skating ribbon a nice touch.
  • Nice parc and in Christmas time, there is a lovely market and an ice skating ring. If you are staying in Vienna during this period, I recommend that you pass by this place.
  • A diverse variety of food from traditional to exotic, most of them of good quality. However, finding a place to sit is a pain since it is notoriously crowded and the drinks are somewhat pricy.
  • Lovely park, a great place to have a photo shoot! Kids will enjoy it as much as adults
  • The Roncalli Circus was having it's 40th Anniversary while we were there; so they pitched themselves in front of the Rathaus. It was great fun to have a biergarten to drink in in front of the Rathaus!
